Phantom – Skinny Love (Bon Iver Cover)

Hailing from Finland, Phantom gained reasonable acclaim last year with their Scars EP, which was endorsed by none other then The XX. It’s all been a bit quiet since, but the duo have just unveiled a cover of Bon Iver’s seminal Skinny Love. It’s a stuttering, accomplished rendition of a track that has been done to death by YouTube wannabes the world over, as well as that Ed Sheeran shitstain. This version tops them all, with warm throbbing textures and a bassy chorus that transports the track from its humble folk roots. Check it below, and if you’re heading to The Great Escape next weekend, keep an eye out for Phantom.
