I’m always interested to find out an artist’s musical influences. There’s always the answers you expect to hear that everyone is a fan of – particularly when they’ve been pigeon-holed into a specific genre so usually they will list the artists that you want to hear.
In this particular write-up, that wasn’t the case.
Brisbane’s Jordan Rakei has listed Radiohead as one of his favourite bands and yesterday, he released a cover of one of his favourite songs, Bodysnatchers.
A soul artist covering Radiohead? Can you imagine it?
One of the biggest show announcements was announced late last week and discovered in my Instagram feed – of all places!
But nonetheless, I felt the need to share the news – even though some of you may not know either of these artists. It doesn’t really matter though, because once you see them live, you’re going to want to know more about them.
