Thoreau takes on Ember Island's cover of Radiohead classic "Creep"

It's a magical thing that happens when a classic is flipped successfully. It's a grand task to take on, especially with chances of undermining the quality and magnitude that it's set. Ember Island is best known for their blissful covers of stand out tracks including Justin Bieber's "Where Are U Now" and the Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face". In their most recent cover, the group has taken on the 90's classic "Creep" by Radiohead. The Ember Island version was an epic depiction of raw emotions and sincerity.

Based out of Boulder, producer Thoreau has recently decided to pursue music independently and stepped away from his SummitScape project. The multi-talented producer uses his expansive musical abilities in his sound to combine the analog and electronic. This layered sound is extremely evident with his remix of Krewella, Pegboard Nerds, NGHTMRE's "Superstar". The remix merged a kinetic future bass sound with a growling guitar element to add full dimension. In his take of Ember Island's cover of "Creep", he fortifies the version with grand synths in a trembling soundscape. The track is bedazzled in hard-hitting percussions and riveting melodies. The outro works in a heavy guitar lick, emphasizing an honesty and realness in its chords. Thoreau's remix further excites audiences with his hybrid sound take highlights rock elements within top-notch electronic works.
