Last year the LA-based musician Mr. Little Jeans‘ released this excellent cover of Arcade Fire’s ‘The Suburbs’. If like me, you somehow missed this track then you really should check it out. As covers go, this is a master-class on how they’re done.
Mr. Little Jeans is the stage-name of Monica Birkeness, a Norweigan musician who is now based in the US. Recently she signed to Sony and later this summer they’ll be putting out her debut album. With a sound this sharp and a record deal with the likes of Sony, there’s really no doubt that we’ll be hearing a lot more of her in the coming months. Indeed, just last week she released her lead single Runaway which is already starting to make waves on the Internet. Check out more of what she does over on Soundcloud.
