James Blake Strips Down A Simon and Garfunkel Classic
    • MONDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2015

    James Blake revisited BBC Radio 1's Residency last night where he debuted his cover of the classic "Sound of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel. The seductive harmonies of the original are preserved even more so in Blake's cover with its lack of guitar or drums, creating a stillness even more chilling than the song itself. Blake's minimalist approach to the timeless track is penetrating, where the angelic harmonies backed only by forlorn synths find their way to reach your core. Listen to the BBC performance here.
