Marika Hackman | Burgundy (Warpaint Cover)

October 29, 2012 at 2:52 pm Leave a comment

U.K. musician Marika Hackman posted a new cover on her soundcloud page, a sparse version of Warpaint’s “Burgundy” (link to original), off the California band’s wonderful debut EP “Exquisite Corpse” (2008). Hackman’s “Burgundy” is haunting and sparse, holding true to the original’s sense of foreboding and slow seduction. It’s a beautiful and lush re-imagining of a song that seems to be about two people disappearing into each other, obsession and finding clarity in the complex mystery of love — all wrapped in a shadowy apocalyptic mood: “If you want to hold me, I’ll hold you more than anyone ever wanted anyone before …” Hackman has posted other covers you can hear at soundcloud, like Nirvana’s “Lithium” and Nico’s “These Days”. You can also follow her at facebook. Visit her official website to grab a link to a free EP of five cover songs, which includes “Marble House” by The Knife and “Spooky” by Dusty Springfield. Note: Image above taken by Owen Richards. Hackman is currently supporting Benjamin Francis Leftwich on tour, and can be heard October 31 at Roisin Dubh in Galway, Ireland; November 1 at Cyprus Avenue in Cork; Nov. 2 at Oh Yeah Music Center and Limelight in Belfast; Nov. 3 at Whelan’s in Dublin; Nov. 26 at Komedia in Brighton, U.K.; Nov. 27 at Thekla Upstairs in Bristol; and Nov. 28 at Water Rats in London. — David D. Robbins Jr.
