Sylvan Esso feat. Collections of Colonies of Bees: Funeral Singers (Califone Cover)

This cover of experimental post-rock band Califone‘s “Funeral Singers” (from 2009’s All My Friends Are Funeral Singers) by Sylvan Esso and Collections of Colonies of Bees sublimely blends all three outfits’ distinct styles. The tune fuses moody electro-pop and indie rock, beginning with Amelia Meath’s gorgeous, familiar vocals—which are then layered with more and more voices. The song builds rhythmically and eerily, ultimately creating an emotional three-minute journey.
