SIDE NOTES: Sondre Lerche Covers Miley
A name you couldn’t escape in 2013? Miley. A name that hasn’t yet had rabid public attention? Sondre.
It’s no secret that we are big fans of Sondre Lerche. He’s a damn gem. We have hosted him many times over for utterly breathtaking and fun live sets, and each holiday season we look forward to hearing which song he has decided to cover per his new tradition (remember ‘Countdown’?).
I know what you’re thinking. Oh, another cover of ‘Wrecking Ball’, been there done that. Much like Lorde’s haunting cover of Tears For Fears, Sondre’s take on Miley is unexpectedly awesome. The minimalist approach and slow build seems to amplify the yearning and anguish of the fallen love depicted in the song. Well done, Sondre.
