Today’s Daily Feature is a cover of the classic Stevie Nicks’ tune “Edge of Seventeen”. The cover is done by English Indie Pop singer Alex Harry who appeared on the audition show The Voice UK this year. Harry’s take of this 80s song is a chilling one with a slow-burning opening with gruff vocals, gloomy moods, and eerie guitars responding to the vocals.
Note by note, the ghostly tones steadily fade away to be replaced with a rockish tense building up to taking the ghostly tones’ place. This tension finally explodes at the chorus with soulful rock vibes coming out with full force. The vocals change from gruff to soulful as well as the instrumentation as it has more of a rock edge to them.
Harry’s take on the iconic Stevie Nicks’ tune shouldn’t be missed as the build-up was fantastically implemented. From the gloomy start, the song explodes with soulful rock that is filled with so many emotions and aptitude. What do you think of this cover?
