Brothers Erik and Carson Lund have established their own brand of dark and baroque electro pop with their project Mines Falls. Brooding electronics mix with organic instrumentation to give you a feeling of floating away in overcast skies. Melancholy pop that brings to the table a sophistication and intellectualism that’s hard to find these days.
Recently Mines Falls dropped a surreal and darkly funny for their album track “From Behind Glass”, and now they’ve given us their take on Kylie Minogue’s dance floor classic “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head”, with some help from Sabine Holler.
Of course Mines Falls aren’t going to attempt to faithfully cover the queen of dance pop bpm for bpm. Instead Carson and Erik, along with Sabine Holler, give us a baroque and moody rendition that while is undeniably Minogue’s dance floor calling card, has the Mine Falls sonic stamp.
The techno rhythm is replaced with an arpeggiated synth line, while the body of the track is a contemplative piano. Vocals drip with mood and longing, while Sabine Holler gives us that well known vocal line that lets us know where this song came from originally.
