The Up-Turn

Beyonce’s 2008 song Halo is quickly becoming an indie staple just as much as it is of mainstream-radio.  We have already posted Major Lazor’s take on the song and an amazing acoustic cover which were great alternative take’s to the r & b original.  Sweden’s ceo is the latest to take on the song and their version is as amazing as we could hope.  Eric’s vocals fit greatly with the innocent nature of the song and the dreamy landscapes in the background go well beyond the original’s production.  Washes of shoegaze and electro-pop really lift this cover into a riveting re-imagination.  The ending takes one last surprising turn and I can’t stop listening to the song.  Thanks to PMA for the tip.
