It’s been over six months since we have seen a Lady Gaga cover here on Cover Me, and Folly and the Hunter must have realized that is simply not OK when they decided to perform this cover. OK, maybe the cover was recorded as a thank you to one of the band’s indiegogo contributors, but we still at Cover Me are very grateful.
While most acoustically driven covers of Lady Gaga have the run-of-the-mill-girl-in-a-coffee-shop vibe, Folly and the Hunter go for a different approach. Slowing down the original music video to appropriately fit the rhythm of the cover, the song feels, in a bizarre way, voyeuristic, a folk-laced interpretation of a woman’s rebirth from the ashes. Or, if you just listen to it, it feels like a damn good cover of a Lady Gaga song.
