I’ll admit that, for a brief minute, I had my hopes up that this delightful Swedish pop artist had decided to cover one of my favorite Neil Young songs. And I will cop to a little disappointment that it wasn’t that at all. All of those emotions were quickly swept aside, though, once I got a listen to this little gem.
Not surprisingly, the song is a tribute to that album/song by the venerable rocker. But rather than be some lovelorn weepy country/folk tune, MIYNT and producer Daniel Nigro lay the synth and booming beats on thick, with enough room for her to sing her ode to making the most of the time we are allotted here on this planet.
Keep an eye out for MIYNT’s forthcoming EP – titled Ep no. 1 – which drops on September 16th via B3SCI Records.
