Wilsen/Waxahatchee- Oblivion (Grimes Cover)

Two very different covers of Grimes’ ‘Oblivion’, one of my favourite tracks of last year. Wilsen brings out the beauty of the melody line, her velvet voice floating over the shimmering guitar sounds.

Waxahatchee (Katie Crutchfield) and her sister Alison have quite a different take on the song, making the ‘Ooooo see you on a dark night’ sound like it’s coming from an angsty teenage runaway.
