Marking one of the rare occasions in which he lends his own vocals to a song, Indigo Eyes is back today with a reworking of Holly Humberstone’s ‘The Walls Are Way Too Thin’ that sees him completely transform the indie-pop gem.
“I never thought I’d cover someone else’s song, especially since I’ve been solely a producer and haven’t ventured into singing before. However, I was completely in awe when I heard the original from Holly, the song resonated with me hugely and I became obsessed with how personal the lyrics felt. I wanted to recreate the track in my own style, with a kind of late night, comforting feel to it. It started out as a bit of an experiment over a few days, where I tried out using my own voice over this warm, soft production, as it’s something I’d never done before, but became something I really loved. This sound marks a new kind of direction for my music, one which you’ll be hearing a lot of over the next few months.”
