Silver Medallion - Dancing On My Own (Robyn Cover)

Not really sure what I like the most about this cover. It's either his very unique vocals or the fact that it's a guy doing a pretty decent cover of one of my favorite Robyn tracks. It took me a couple of listens but I've really come around on it. I like the take on the beat and the melody. His voice reminds me of someone else and I can't think of it. It's from a new wave act and I'm pretty sure they're British but I can't place it. The video is pretty neat and I dig how he mugs for the camera. I think it does a bang up job of paying tribute to our girl and at the same time stands well enough on it's own to not simply be a shadow of a cover. Take a listen and let me know what you think. He's done other covers as well including Flo Rida, Nicki Minaj. He kind of has a Shannon Hoon meets Evan Dando thing going and I appreciate that. Subscribe to his YouTube Channel and watch a couple of vids. I promise, it's worth it.
