PREMIERE: Sarah Belkner and the Danaides' haunting cover of Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun" overflows with nostalgia and affection. Recorded for The Newsagency Sessions, Sydney
Over the past two weeks we have been premiering Sydney singer/songwriter Sarah Belkner's wonderful recordings as part of her latest project, the Newsagency Sessions. First up, was the premiere a stunning cover of Sir Cliff Richard's hit We Don't Talk Anymore performed by Sydney songstresses Sarah Belkner and Alison Avron. Last week, Sarah was at it again - this time with Merpire singing a stunning cover of Sylvan Esso's "Die Young."
The third installment from this four part series features Sarah singing up an emotional storm with Sydney local outfit the Danaides as they present their haunting cover of Soundgarden's Black Hole Sun - and with it all the memories of Chris Cornell's genius songwriting come flooding back. A worthy and affectionate tribute.
For the last three years artist and producer Sarah Belkner has had a residency at Sydney's The Newsagency where she invites other artists to showcase their talent, and create mesmerising duets. Delightfully, Music Love will exclusively be premiering each new track every Thursday!
Sarah Belkner is an extremely dedicated music maker. She recently released a gorgeous record called But You Are But It Has (we interviewed her about that here), and while her solo work is nothing short of captivating, one of the unique things about Sarah is her beautiful embrace of other artists. She has played as a session musician for many Australian artists such as Chet Faker, Sarah Blasko and Olympia - all of whom sing her praises. Not only that, for the last three years Sarah has had a residency at Sydney's cosy music venue, The Newsagency where she invites other artists to showcase their talent, and then together they create and release mesmerising duets. In the past, Sarah has offered spots to such talent as All Our Exes' Kate Wighton, MAPLES. Abby Dobson and NGAIIRE.
Be sure to tune in for next Thursday for Sarah's final session with Diamond Duck. At this rate, it's bound to be another heaven sent gem.
