MO ‘Waste Of Time’ (LANKS Cover)

LANKS

As opposed to original releases, you experience a different kind of excitement when discovering reinterpretations of songs created by your favourite acts. You gain insight into their tastes, whilst simultaneously exploring a different dimension to their craft. Moments before heading out to catch  last week, Melbourne talent, LANKS beautifully covered the Scandinavian’s single, ‘Waste Of Time’.

Blotting out the traffic formulated in the original, LANKS approaches ‘Waste Of Time’ with just his guitar and a loop station. A rather intimate display, the exposure of gentle guitar sequences overlay each other in utter vulnerability; their nakedness highlighted be a lack of differing background. Twinkling delicately in their cosmic energies, the charm of these fluttery guitar fairies is heightened by the variation of LANKS‘ vocal capacity.

Crafting a breathtaking delight, LANKS‘ rendition of MØ’s, ‘Waste Of Time’ is as refreshing as it is powerful, which isn’t bad for a product of improvisation.

You can stream LANKS‘ cover of ‘s, ‘Waste Of Time’ on his Soundcloud. Be sure to stick around and listen to his recently released Banquet EP, also available to purchase via iTUNES.
