#songoftheday / REVIEW: FKA twigs: “Elastic Heart” (Sia Cover from Live Lounge)

I’m struggling to come up with anything to say about this one because it’s given me chills and I’m still trembling from them… Suffice to say, FKA twigs has just pulled off one of the best covers of all-time on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge.  Well over a hundred artists have done covers on Live Lounge, many of which have been released on the station’s always fantastic Live Lounge CDs, but the one you’re about to hear is easily in the top 10 of all-time.  And this is coming from someone who was getting sick of Sia’s “Elastic Heart” but FKA twigs’ version truly breathes new life in it, making the vocals more subtle, the beats less in your face and, most importantly, giving it something of a trip-hop makeover.  It’s magic; prepare to be spellbound!
