watch A.A. Williams cover Nine Inch Nails, Nick Cave, Radiohead & more for isolation video series
Last year, dark dream-folk singer A.A. Williams released an excellent collaborative single with MONO and her own great self-titled EP, and now during quarantine she's doing a "Songs From Isolation" video series where she'll perform a mix of her own songs and covers suggested by fans in black-and-white videos shot at her North London home.
The newest one is a song that resonates very strongly in these times, Nine Inch Nails' "Every Day Is Exactly The Same," and A.A.'s bare-bones, piano-and-voice take on the song is breathtaking. She gave a very similar treatment to Radiohead's "Creep" and Gordon Lightfoot's "If You Could Read My Mind," and she also reinvented Nick Cave's "Into My Arms" with a guitar version of what was usually a piano song. All four are great -- watch below and stay tuned for more.
