Von Grey – “Creep” (Radiohead cover)

I’m not really keen on posting covers, and especially those of famous tracks, but I’m always fond of orchestral ambitions taking hold of more pop and rock-oriented originals. Classically trained Atlanta alternative quartet Von Grey accomplish such on their take of Radiohead’s “Creep”, with soaring vocals, crunchy guitars, and yearning strings resulting in a very engrossing re-imagining. The track’s bitterness and melancholy are captured well with the string-laden additions and ghostly vocal duets. The group has played everywhere from Conan and Letterman to Bonnaroo and SXSW, and it’s easy to hear why.
