It’s startling to hear Kiesza‘s synth pop jam “Hideaway” covered by English singer-songwriter Ben Howard. What’s more startling is just how much it works. Howard strips the song down by providing all of the sound with just his guitar. He does this by making use of deep bass strums, high pitched plucks and intricate slides to imitate electronic-sounding elements. With his expressive vocals on top, Howard takes the song from pop to something moodier and far more desperate.
