Now about half way through her European tour, EMA (AKA Erika M Anderson) has recently released her single Anteroom on September 19 alongside a cover of Nirvana’s Endless Nameless.
EMA’s cover of Endless Nameless is strange, to say the least. Mixing her sometimes muffled vocals with extremely distorted and heavy rock sounds makes for some rather odd music, much like the original.
If I’m perfectly honest, I can’t understand a word she’s singing and this track gives me a headache but I don’t think that’s necessarily her cover, the original also hurts my ears.
Not one my favourite Nirvana tracks as it just sounds like some drunk has come in to the studio and trashed it with all the equipment plugged in but others like it and I’m sure others will appreciate this cover too. It’s not for me though.
