Alxxa – Umbrella (Rihanna cover)

 

Always loved the original of this track that has such a catchy chorus.  I don’t post too many covers since most of them either A: they don’t do take the track into new territory , or B: they are not up to par with the original.  What we have is a track that forges new territory and in some respects, at least to me, out does the original.

 

KOY – HEAT

Harking back to OMD and recalling a bit of Bjork along the way.  It’s 80’s synthpop meets ethereal vibes and psychedelic dreams.

About the video:

The DIY-video following KOY’s first release “HEAT”, is an homage to vintage horror/sci-fi-culture, portraying various historical monster figures, fears and hopes. Vampires, witches, robots and other creatures guide you through a humoristic inner landscape of fear and bravery.

Along the way KOY has been collecting musical traces that travel with her.
