Cover songs can be a dicey proposition. Missteps are easy and fatal. But Yvette Winkler and Frank Weyzig have a knack to find amazing and often overlooked gems in an artist's catalog.
Their stunning cover of PJ Harvey’s “Shame” draws you in immediately. Frank Weyzig’s direct connection to the original post-punk movement (he was a member of early Clan of Xymox during the first two albums) pays huge dividends in this reimagined classic. It has all the authenticity and dramatic flair of the late 80ties, while the production and execution are squarely footed in 2022. Best of both worlds if you will. The band doubles down with their second track, a Cher cover of “A Woman's Story“. The bold, grand interpretation showcases the deep passion and skill that Frank and Yvette bring to the table. A prime example is Frank’s guitar solo on the track. His performance is incredibly emotional, evocative, and leaves you deeply moved. Paired with Yvette’s perfect vocal delivery the duo creates an incredibly powerful version of “A Woman's Story“ and truly makes it their own.
