Jónsi – “Time To Pretend” (MGMT Cover)

Over the weekend Jónsi visited the Jo Whiley Show on BBC Radio 1, where he performed the title track from his EP Go Do and a cover of MGMT’s “Time To Pretend.” The cover is a good reminder of two things: How great “Time To Pretend” is (some people need to be reminded today), and how delicately gorgeous Jónsi Birgisson’s falsetto can sound. It’s just him and a piano, so you might notice that he purposely skips over some of the words, touching down lightly on the nouns.
