MADEIRA just unveiled her cover of Flight Facilities’ “Crave You.” Check out the premiere via GoldFlakePaint: “It’s every bit as bright and captivating as we’ve come to expect.”
Kim Pflaum on the track:
I’ve been a Flight Facilities fan for a long while, and was lucky enough to see them last year while at Austin City Limits. There’s something really special about their music that transports you to another time and place. When I listen to their music I always get the feeling I’m on holiday in Italy or Switzerland, driving through the alps in a classic car past pristine lakes and world class vistas. So it’s only natural that I’d want to cover one of their songs to try be a part of that. This track really speaks too me, the longing and unrequited love (well that’s how I read it) are topics that I feel are sort of my speciality! It reminds me of a great track by sixties group The Honeys ‘The One You Can’t Have (is the one that you want the most)’, that feeling of not being able to make it work with the person you really want to. I approached Alistair from Boycrush to work on the track with me and really happy with what we’ve come up with together! I love the almost MJ style baseline. I think it really suits this version. I hope you all like it too.
++ Catch her in London this Thursday, October 19th! More details here.
