Carousel- Dancing On My Own (Robyn Cover)
Wow. Carousel have really done it with this cover. 'Dancing On My Own', of my favorite songs of all time, has been trendily covered a lot as of late. This remix though is so beautifully captivating. The soft vocals that ever so slightly remind me of Röksopp and synths that are large and grandiose enough to capture the original's spirit and yet, so demure as to preserve sadness, almost as if whispering. (Also, shout out to Carousel for not changing the lyrics because they wouldn't be hetero/cis-normative enough.) Amazing cover.
