Published Oct 22, 2014It seems like '90s revivalism has been everywhere for the last few years, so it's about time that an up-and-coming indie artist reclaimed and re-contextualized Sugar Ray. Right on cue, Rosie June has unveiled a cover of "When It's Over."
June does a good job at making the tune her own while still retaining the hooks that made it popular in the first place. She strips away the radio sheen, replacing it with a ghostly flutter of gossamer guitar plucking, slow electronic beats and fragile coos. The accompanying visuals show June and a guitarist performing the tune in dim, purplish lighting.
Watch it below.
June reissued her album Listening Post earlier this year through Brendan Canning's Draper Street Records and Bandwagon Music.
She is playing tonight (October 22) at the Anza Club in Vancouver. David Vertesi is also on the bill.
