Holly Miranda - Covers

Whilst we’re waiting for the follow up to Holly Miranda’s sleepy and sensuous debut long player The Magician’s Private Library the ex-Jealous Girlfriends singer and former Breaking More Waves One to Watch has decided to keep fans entertained with a number of cover versions that she’s recently uploaded to her Soundcloud account. “I am always recording covers, for fun, for favours, for weddings. These are just a few of the covers I’ve recorded in the last year or so,” she announced on her blog a week or so ago, before adding further songs a couple of days later.

Whilst you can hear all of the covers by clicking here, we’ve picked our personal favourites to stream below. First is her version of The XX’s Crystalized featuring Glowhearts and Timmy Mislock, which takes the song to even deeper levels of hushed cheerlessness. This is followed by Holly’s version of Breathe from the classic Pink Floyd album Dark Side of the Moon – a languidly atmospheric comedown if ever there was one.

Now hurry up Holly and let’s have another album out of you, although judging by your previous work and these songs, you’re probably not the sort of person for rushing anything.
