Lia Hide releases new video single, covering Massive Attack's, "Teardrop"!

Amazing cover to an emotional song from Lia Hide!


Lia Hide, with an exceptional and emotional voice, returns with a new cover. This time, it is a really atmospheric song from Massive Attack and Elizabeth Fraser, "Teardrop".

Lia Hide manages to give an extra tension on this low-tempo emotional song, adding more strength on the drum beats. There is a higher tempo then the original, while more sharp guitar riffs added, giving a sense of a cold, post-punk melody. Additionally, Lia uses a wurlitzer effect, giving a sense of a guitar sound that reminds that of The Cure style, and the synth lines gives a dark wave, synthpop attitude. Lia's voice is magical and gives, to a difficult song regarding the vocals, her own touch and lyrical style. 

Definitely, beautiful cover, giving a new dimension to a classic dream pop song like "Teardrop". Lia transforms the Massive Attack super hit to a dark art pop track.

The new single/cover from Lia Hide, comes with a beautiful video which manages to express all these that "Teardrop" brings and that Lia's cover adds.
