Emika has posted a new version of Chris Isaak's classic 'Wicked Game' online.
'Wicked Game' has become the modern 'My Way'. A standard, it has been covered by everyone from Washed Out To WU LYF, The Royal We to Finish rockers HIM.
Now Emika has recorded her version. The Ninja Tune affiliated artist has just completed new album 'Dva' which is billed as a fresh analysis of her music roots.
It seems that those influences include Chris Isaak alongside classic techno, dub and other electronic excursions. In Emika's hands, love becomes a burden and 'Wicked Game' becomes an exploration of claustrophobic relationships.
There's a soulful touch here, though, one that allows her respect for the original to shine through. Check out it below.
