Swedish Synth Pop Star Krigarè Gives 80’s Classic Take On Me” (A-Ha Cover) A Modern Rebirth
The art of song covers is an inexact science that is far more akin to alchemy in truth. Swedish synth-pop musician Krigarè has thrown her hat into the cover arena with a futuristic rendition of the 80’s classic “Take On Me” by A-Ha. This mind-blowing cover is a uniquely arranged and performed rendition of the hugely famous song but comes equipped with its own effervescence and infectious energy. If you’re a fan of 80’s synth-pop this cover is a mandatory addition to your collection.
Krigarè recorded her own vocals for the song and also came up with the concept behind it in addition to producing, directing and starring in the music video herself. Undoubtedly artistic, the video for Krigare’s “Take On Me” cover gives us some insight into the mind of a uniquely talented artist. A stark departure from the original video Krigare’s take brings the singer’s bold personality into full view. The bold arrangement and video are evidence of an artist who is not afraid to break barriers and rewrite the rules in her own way. The explosive visual imagery is only dwarfed by Krigarè’s own mammoth vocal range.
In her native Sweden, Krigarè is known for her strong imagery with intense storytelling lyrics. Her electronic driven melodies, weighted with textured guitars, takes the listener on a cinematic journey of emotions, battles and empowerment. Connect with Krigarè on Soundcloud and Facebook.
