UK acoustic indie songstress Jennifer Left has been slowly making a name for herself in recent years. Already the Brighton songbird has become quite well-known on the other side of the pond, and has started her own invasion of the American airwaves. Her staying power has become increasingly evident as many BBC's DJs have been repeatedly playing her songs since the release of her first EP, Blackdog.
Her latest EP Diggory is set to be release November 5, and we at EARMILK, have an exclusive sneak peek of this upcoming EP. This track happens to be a cover of 1980s new-wave, electronic English rock band New Order's "Temptation". With this in mind, translate that into Left's acoustic pop style with a neo-folk approach.
Left's cover is toned down tenfold compared to the original. Her suave, soothing voice projects a love-struck feeling through her wondrous melodic singing. It's a simple, acoustic, feel-good cover executed artfully, in which is quite difficult not to put on repeat. Left has transformed this song to fit into any low-key environments by the sheer mellow-ness and smoothness of the cover. It's one of those covers where you can peacefully drink coffee to in a local coffee shop.
Listeners can expect more original work in Diggory, as well as a few remixes next month. So take this exciting opportunity to listen to Left's acclaimed style, which will no doubt take America's acoustic indie scene by storm. If you missed Left's release of the wildly popular Blackdog, make your over to her BandCamp page.
