Barns Courtney has long been a striking talent - now the world seems to be catching up.
The newcomer plays London venue the Scala on March 22nd, and it's his biggest headline show yet, another signpost on a surging, unstoppable path.
Taking a rare five minute break recently, Barns picked up his acoustic guitar, and began picking out a few notes, sketching a few chords.
Suddenly a new cover came forth. Re-working Lana Del Rey's languid pop masterpiece 'Blue Jeans' as a striking solo performance, it's dominated by a real powerhouse vocal.
Becoming a firm favourite, Barns Courtney recently recorded a full version of the song, a sparse, stripped back, but incredibly urgent piece.
Watch it below.
