You trust us, right? Like we’re friends? We’re cool? Cause if that’s the case, we know you’ll listen to us when we tell you that you don’t want to miss out on Asha June and her cover of Nirvana’s ‘Heart-Shaped Box.’
How stunning is this cover art by the way? We’re kind of obsessed. Anyway, Asha June’s ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ is a more laid-back pop version of the track compared to Nirvana’s original grunge sound. And before you start, we don’t wanna hear a single complaint. Asha June said her ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ cover is meant to reflect how she feels at this point in her life. It’s her interpretation, and that means it may sound different from the original, covers work that way.
Sound-wise, we love this version’s more chill pop vibes, and Asha June’s vocals are absolutely stunning. If we were to ever get a video or visualizer to accompany this song, we have a feeling the aesthetics would be gorgeous.
Asha June has quite the musical background. From her Dutch father and Kenyan mother exposing her to a variety of different music growing up to her formal music education, she’s been developing her musical talent for years. We love the cover, but we’re excited to see what else she has in store for us in terms of her original music as well!
