Anna Calvi’s great self-titled album was one of the highlights of this last year. We have the just released video of her covering the song "Wolf Like Me" from another one of our favorite bands, TV On The Radio.
Anna says this about the song: "I love the desperation in this song – the original by TV On The Radio is relentless, and terrifying. I find the idea of losing control of oneself very provocative, and the way this idea is explored in "Wolf like Me" is humorous but dangerously effective. In my version I wanted to imagine the change is almost happening in slow motion- that there is no fight anymore, but a dreamlike embrace of the inevitable. I wanted the song to feel like a hypnotic prayer. I chose to omit the last verse of the original, and instead allow the guitar to take over, at the point where all control is lost!"
