Einar Stray Orchestra
's cult classic debut album Chiaroscuro
turns 10 years in 2022. To celebrate the event, Berlin-based label Sinnbus
is releasing a series of cover versions and reworks of all the album's songs.
Awesome Norwegian art pop and electronica trio Von August
release their version of "Yr Heart Isn't A Heart", translating the lyrics to Norwegian. The band ditched the lush flowery exhuberance of the original for the bare-bones minimalism of cold Nothern electronica. The track starts with the sounds of nature and ends with a harsh industrial techno beat, highlighting the song's lyrics dealing with environmental issues.
Listen to the track, read how it was made and make sure to check the trio's unique style showcased on other songs included in this feature.
