2021 marks 30 years of Indie label Kill Rock Stars and that celebration has included a new cover singles series titled Stars Rock Kill (Rock Stars), where over 40 artists from around the world will cover tracks from KRS’ expansive catalogue including Mary Lou Lord & Mikaela Davis, Fruit Bats, Shamir, Xiu Xiu, Habibi, TEKE::TEKE, Anaïs Mitchell and more.
Corrina Repp comments on her musical choices for the song, saying:
“There’s no one like Jamie. His lyrics, phrasing, vocal style. He couldn’t be further from how I sing a song. I’ve always struggled with cover songs, just wanting to leave well enough alone. I found a way to channel Jamie through my own voice and slow motion dismantling of the song. I hope I did it justice and perhaps put an entirely new emotional veil across this version.”
Currently based in Los Angeles, Corrina Repp originally emerged in the Portland scene where, across six albums, she developed her sound and carved out a space for her music. Her latest full length album, Island, is Corrina’s first self-written and self-recorded album and arrived last month.
