Germany’s own gentle-voiced songstress Enna started her Soundcloud page about a year ago as a way to pay tribute to some of her favorite artists. Since her Soundcloud debut she has covered everything from classic Frank Sinatra and Sinead O’ Connor to, more recently, Bon Iver and Little Dragon. While there are no shortage of Iver covers out there, Enna’s instrumentally simple interpretation of his songs “Michicant” and “Flume” are a welcome addition to the catalog, and her soft and somewhat eerie interpretation of Little Dragon’s “Twice” will definitely bring the song some new attention.

While Bon Iver’s “Michicant” is a fairly instrument-heavy song, Enna strips the song down by sticking to a few drums, woodwind, the basic guitar, and her soft voice. Her interpretation of “Flume” is a little less of a departure from the original, sticking to the slow guitar and haunting vocals. Either way, both covers have earned themselves a spot in the Bon Iver Cover Hall of Fame. Little Dragon, on the other hand, have not been as extensively covered, which makes Enna’s interpretation an easy favorite. Her simple guitar and soft vocals work to both remind us of the original and bring a refreshing new set of ears to the hit.
