Ellie Goulding’s live cover of The Knife’s ‘Heartbeats’ is the only cover I can tolerate (i.e. I love the original and hate Jose Gonzalez generic, uninspired, snorefest). Ellie’s voice, with it’s slight rasp, adds something to the song nicely. Wonderful news the that Russia’s coolest producer, Cosmonaut Grechko, has editied the hell out of it.
Dropping a nice chilled beat and some spaced-out synths in the background turns a nice cover into something pretty special. Grechko has actually turned the backing track into something a bit reminiscant of The Postal Service. It’s very easy to stick this track on the headphones and get lost in Grechko’s programming and Ellie’s voice.
