Laoise

Dublin based electro-pop artist Laoise has released her own take on Nirvana’s classic ‘Come As You Are’.

Working as a serene synth-pop based contrast on the taut tension of the original, the chilled out beats and chiming bells of the track work as a texturally deep backdrop for Laoise to place her enchanting vocal upon.

Taking on such a revered classic can be a daunting task, play too close to the original sound and you can sounding redundant. What Laoise does instead is take the source material and weave her own sound and meaning around the song, making for a compelling re-imagining.
