‘The Suburbs’ by Arcade Fire is a song that inspires reminiscence. An upbeat nostalgic theme that can relate to a time and place long expired. What does Mr. Little Jeans do to contribute to this theme? She makes it electronic and slows it down, resulting with a change in mood and meaning. She creates a dark psychedelic angle that feels as if you’re drowning in melancholic synthesizers along with a rigid beat that produces a disconnection from your past. This sonic vibe is fittingly summed up by Win Butler’s lyrics, “Sometimes I can’t believe it, I’m moving past the feeling” So close your eyes and slip on the headphones, as this cover will send you to places you’ve long forgotten.
