SONG OF THE DAY Nilufer Yanya – Hey

10151205_808158425915408_8277182608889126267_nNilufer Yanya is London born singer-songwriter whose self-described soulful indie music is making waves, with her latest venture an interesting take on a Pixies song.

Going by her Soundcloud page Nilufer has been releasing music for just over a year, and it’s already quite evident that she is one to keep watching.

Recorded by Bullion for a recent covers album on his label DEEK Records, ‘Hey’ by the Pixies has been wonderfully reworked by Nilufer and this version is based on a much more jazzy sound.  This is a smooth and an understated cover where the melody remains relatively close to the original throughout and the subtle change is in the soft vocals and totally laid-back approach, this is what gives this track a whole new individual sound.  Listen above.

‘Hey’ features an album titled “Extraordinary Renditions,” which is available to buy now.
