Mint Julep launches “I Never Wanted You” into the atmosphere with their beautiful cover of Headphones’ seminal track. The Portland husband-wife duo creates subtle tension in the track with singer Hollie Kenniff’s unaffected, soft vocals and bubbling instrumentation. Lyrically, it is an angry anthem for your ex with lines like “Baby, I was faking the whole time.” Kenniff’s detached singing style stands in contrast with the words, creating an interesting dynamic with the song’s biting nature. I’ve been listening to this on repeat for the past few hours, so maybe you should give it a listen.
