Self-proclaimed folktronica artist Mikey Maramag, better know as Blackbird Blackbird, has deconstructed and reassembled Kate Bush’s 1985 classic, “Running Up That Hill,” for The Work Magazine. The rendition is hypnotic with layers of sound building up gradually on top of one another and relying on only a few repeated lyrics. Instead of getting hung up on the original blueprint, Mr. Maramag has thoughtfully taken inspiration from the subtle complexity of Kate Bush’s music. Stream it below.
Blackbird Blackbird’s Boracay Planet EP is out now on Lavish Habits.
