Today’s SOTD sounds like The Knife because it’s the lead singer, Karin Dreijer, as Fever Ray. Here she is with her version of the Peter Gabriel song, Mercy Street. I appreciate the original but I appreciate this moody cover just as much. Perfect for a Friday that promises a creative and adventurous weekend ahead.
For those curious to hear the original, I’ve included it below. Gabriel’s version is equally haunting and moving (perhaps more so) but is firmly planted in 1986.
