The ethereal tones of Serbian-Canadian musician Dana Gavanski can stir a breeze and destroy like a storm. Today, following the release of “I Talk To The Wind,” she shares the second single to be taken from her forthcoming Wind Songs EP, a collection of covers set for release on August 14th via Flemish Eye.
I only discovered this brilliant song within the last year. Written by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers and originally sung by Chic, Robert Wyatt does a superb cover of it that just blows my mind, with his bizarre but amazing vocals and arrangement: that soft and gentle mellotron flute that pushes the song along coupled with his shrill wizardly voice. The way he makes the covers he’s done his own has been a big inspiration on making this EP. He does a super beautiful rendition of “Te Recuerdo Amanda” by Victor Jara that is equally as bizarre, and a totally different world from the original.
