Neil Young – icon. But this isn’t a post about him. The man is weird, writes a mean tune and is a living legend, and people cover his shit. All.the.time. Can’t say I blame them.
Driving today I heard one such cover. Obsession took over. Into the Black is a short song lyrically…..for the few words it really does say so much. The Chromatics, a band from Portland Oregon takes this one make it dreamy and haunting, different intensity than the orignal but with the same brililance. Admittedly I do not know the Chromatics beyond these last few moments, but I will by the end of week, that I can guarntee.
This is the second single from Kill For Love which was released on March 26th. I’m off to listen to the rest and go back in their discography to see where and how they got here……what are you doing?
