British singer-songwriter Sivu gives us a dreamy pop take on Nirvana in his cover of “Dumb.” It’s hard to please when covering such an influential band, but going for one of the deeper cuts on In Utero was a good choice. Minimalist and modern, Sivu’s keyboard-driven version feels a more fitting tribute to Kurt Cobain than the hideous statue that was recently unveiled in Aberdeen.
Sivu’s newest EP Can’t Stop Now is out on iTunes via Warner Music UK. Stream “Dumb” below.
