‘Skinny Love’ is honestly one of my favourite songs. And whilst I’m very excited to be seeing Bon Iver in March perform at the Sydney Opera House, I’ve recently heard a cover of this particular track that perhaps has made me liking it more than the original.
I know it’s a big call, and sure, there are so many versions of this song out there, but this may be one that is up to par with original artist Bon Iver’s. Lately, I just can’t seem to stop listening to this version. At least, ever since I heard it last week.
Hailing from the UK, Birdy’s voice is so piercingly beautiful that I am surprised she is still unknown to most. Although I discovered her from hearing her sing covers of artists like Bon Iver and Pheonix, she’s starting to pave her own path with her original songs. But whether she’s singing her own or someone else’s, she’s definitely proven that she can. Listen to a mixture of both here.
I know that I will be closely following the career of Birdy, and I hope that you will be too. Enjoy.
