Sophie Barker - A Forest

It's a testament to the writing skills of Robert Smith of The Cure that his songs can be transposed into so many different genres and still sound reassuringly fresh. Take Sophie Barker's version of "A Forest" for example, where the dark guitars, throbbing bass and strained vocals of the original are replaced with soaring strings, acoustic finger-picking and dreamlike, yet impassioned vocals of Ms Barker.

"A Forest" will be released as a double A-side single with original track "Say Goodbye" on October 31st on Ho Hum Records.
