Emma Swift & Pony Boy – Neil Young Split

This new split single from Cosmic Thug Records features Emma Swift and Pony Boy each tackling covers of Neil Young – “Mellow My Mind” and “Like a Hurricane”, respectively.

Pony Boy’s take on “Like a Hurricane” turns the somewhat anthemic original into a mournful lamentation, expressing the underlying sadness of the song. Swift’s “Mellow My Mind” maintains the melancholy of Young’s version but trades the melodrama for her unique voice and a delightfully warbly guitar.

The single isn’t officially released until Feb 14th but you can hear both tracks over on Bandcamp now.
