Will Dailey has won the Boston Music Award for Best Singer/Songwriter. Five times. In his latest triumph, he takes on Arcade Fire‘s “Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains).” He strips the song from its playful disco beat vibes, instead offering a contrasting piece with gentle tapping drums and warm guitar lines in lieu of frisky synths and pianos.
“Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)”, taken off the Canadian indie rock legends’ third album, The Suburbs, takes on a more somber interpretation under Dailey’s touch – no longer a lively synth jam but a mellow and addictive lament. Listen to it below.
