Last week, we reviewed The Last Bison’s debut album ‘Inheritance.’ Now the folksy balladeers have taken on a new challenge: covering M83’s wild “Midnight City.” Trading in synths and drum machines for banjos, guitars and cellos, the band turns one of the best pop songs in recent memory into an emotionally impacting folk jam. This video is a must watch! The violin echoes the synth perfectly, and the chorus drop is just as powerful in the acoustic version. Who said electro-pop and folk aren’t similar?
