Canadian post metal outfit The White Swan recently premiered their cover of Tracy Bonham’s “Tell It To The Sky” at BrooklynVegan. This track appears on their upcoming EP Nocturnal Transimission, due for release September 18th.
Drummer Mercedes Lander elaborates on the cover:
I’ve always thought that “Tell It To The Sky” was a fantastically well-written song. I always try to really think outside the box when it comes to choosing covers and I tend to pick songs that you wouldn’t expect a band like THE WHITE SWAN to cover. Tracy Bonham’s The Burdens Of Being Upright was released the same year I started playing drums and started my first band and this was my favorite song from that record when it was released. I did my best to capture the soaring vocal melodies and we added some layered EBow for the verses which creates a bit of a darker vibe from the original.
