Try to remember, pen to the paper. Portion it out. What’s it about? The pictures are empty, voices have left me. There’s only the plains, sideways rain, and I am ashamed, and I am ashamed, and every day is just the same.
“Running Up That Hill” by Wye Oak // Originally by Kate Bush (AV Undercover // 2014)
In my extra busy last week, I managed to miss one of my favorite bands covering one of my favorite songs. The (almost) always reliable AV Undercover is back for another season of pairing up current artists with tracks from eras gone by. Here we get Wye Oak taking on the breathtaking classic, “Running Up That Hill” by the inimitable Kate Bush. Jenn Wasner does a solid job of shifting the vocals into her own range and delivery, while Andy Stack deconstructs the orchestral pop of the original into a more stripped down percussion and keys approach. It’s a cool take on a classic. Give it a shot above, from AV Undercover.
