Originally sung by Chris Isakk, ‘Wicked Game’ has been through its fair share of covers both good and bad. Lucky for us, and you here at EMPT Nation, this particular cover by Coves is one that we can run away with and claim as an ‘instant classic!’
Que the bad ass Rock ‘n’ Roll electric guitar they added on this sexy cover, a half-broken beating heart in form of drums, and some super sultry vocals that help take the dreamy overtone of the original into the psychedelic soundscapes we don’t seem to mind here, on a grey Wednesday New York City fall day, and you have yourself an incredible cover of a song most of us already love.
Super chilled, super sexy, and super entrancing.
