Fred Again (aka “Fred) is a British producer/ DJ/ multi-instrumentalist. And recently the Canadian rock group Half Moon Run decided to go at the producer’s upbeat synth tune “adore u.” The way the quartet layered their sounds recreated the energetic nature of the original, while all of the percussion added a new charm. In this rendition, you hear shaker, pure vocals, drum kits, synthy keys, and even a string quartet. Watching this live version of their cover is especially satisfying, as you can watch this group of multi-instrumentalists play multiple instruments at once.
Connor Molander had said the band was “Inspired after watching his brilliant “Tiny Desk” session” and that they decided to the band decided to attend the festival in Osheaga to “check out Fred again”
The artist continued, “During that show, we heard a very early performance of “adore u”. We left with the feeling that we’d caught a glimpse into the future. We covered “adore u” as an homage to Fred’s creativity, and in an attempt to dwell a bit longer inside the strong aesthetic impression he made on us. Cheers, Fred!”
