I've been a fan of Fine, It's Pink for years. They've gone back and forth between original music and covers throughout their career. Although they're Romanian, they primarily record in English - and have a unique, ethereal-but-heavy song not unlike the feel of early Cocteau Twins.
Ioana Lefter isn't Kurt Cobain, and that's OK - a Nirvana impersonation doesn't do this song justice. The band teamed with Victor Mihailescu (Platonic Scale) to give the song a darker, modern feel.
Now that we are in the middle of a pandemic, even in Romania, the band is separated. That doesn't mean they aren't making new music..... This is a cover of the Alabama Shakes song "This Feeling" that the band recorded in multiple locations, separated, and released to their Facebook page - please give them a like.
This might be my favorite song of the moment - both in its original version and this cover. I think the lyrics nicely capture what a lot of us are feeling right now.
