I love you when you’re singing that song

Today’s Indie: Riptide / Gossling (Vance Joy Cover)

‘this cowboy’s running from himself / and she’s been living on the highest shelf”

I am predictably a sucker for this slowed down cover of one of this year’s everywhere songs, Riptide, which I still have a spot for despite serious over exposure (self inflicted and otherwise). Melbourne songstress Gossling puts a puckery sweet spin on Vance Joy’s lyrics and the switch of strings for keys, met with simple tambourine, makes this cover its own. Gossling, aka Helen Croome, released her debut album, Harvest of Gold, in 2013, but this track debuted last week. Enjoy. #indie
