Just Listen: Meadowlark – About You Now

Meadowlark

Words: Elena Katrina

meadowlarkWe never write about covers on Popped, like, ever, but sometimes you hear something that doesn’t even sound like it’s a cover, as if the track was written exactly for the new artist singing it. I wasn’t expecting to ever hear Meadowlark take on a Sugarbabes song, or that I’d be writing about it. Katie’s uber fragile and haunting vocal combined with, the now twinkling, re-arrangement pulls on the heartstrings and is so beautiful, how could we not share it? I’m a big fan of this band and this rework of About You Now has just given me another insight to them.

About You Now features on the forthcoming EP, Nocturnes, on March 10th.
