Listen: Sivu Covers Nirvana's 'Dumb'

It's... unusual
Sivu

A great song can withstand any number of arrangements.

Usually, Nirvana covers come in two types: a patient homage to the original, or candlelit acoustic cover.

Sivu though, has seen fit to re-invent a Nirvana classic in a new guise. 'Dumb' is one of the centrepieces of the band's third album 'In Utero', a statement of Kurt Cobain's dissatisfaction with the life being foisted upon him.

Seizing hold of the track, Sivu re-casts it as a droning, synth-led elegiac epic. Check it out below.

Sivu is set to release new single 'Can't Stop Now' on March 23rd - check out a Jack Steadman remix of the track HERE.
