It’s May, which means it’s NZ Music Month! NZ Music Month is a celebration of the wicked homegrown talent of kiwis, with radio stations playing more local tunes and people focusing on how awesome kiwi musicians are.
Lorde is very probably NZ’s most famous musician, so I figured May would be the perfect opportunity to cover her new song (no, not the one about green lights, the other new song). I love it when big artists release songs with very simple instrumentation (especially when it’s piano-based) because it really shows off their vocals and also makes it super easy for solo acts like to me do a decent cover.
Throughout the month of May I’m going to do my utmost to record some more kiwi covers (maybe an original too?) because NZ truly does have some incredible talent that deserves more love.
