Carla Dal Forno – “Summertime Sadness” (Lana Del Rey Cover)

Over the past couple years, the Australian musician Carla Dal Forno has released an album, You Know What It’s Like, and an EP, The Garden, that were both impressive enough to land her on our Best New Bands Of 2017 list. Today, she’s announced a run of North American tour dates, where a special cassette called Top Of The Pops will be available at each show that features Dal Forno covers of some popular songs. One of them is of Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness,” which she reduces to a pitter-patter and a haunting guitar line. Listen below.
