“Laura” by Sofi Gev
“We used a French Connection analog synth to produce the song’s signature piano melody and added Moog bass, strings, and electric guitar to add character and emotion. I could never have improved on the original, but I hope listeners enjoy it and that it leads more people to Natasha’s music.”
Sofi Gev is back with her cover of the impressive song “Laura” by Bat for Lashes. Using the instrumentation as a basis for the song’s emotion, Sofi Gev gives “Laura” a personal touch with her own musicality. The verses swell with each musical note until it crashes with full-blown energy and passion at the chorus. But Sofi Gev doesn’t do this with the instrumentation, but her voice as well as how she performs the songs in something to listen for. It is such a touching cover for a lovely song!
