Kat Edmuson does a bossa nova remix to the Cure’s “Just Like Heaven.”

 

Kat Edmonson is a singer-songwriter from Austin Texas.  Her first album, “Take to the sky,” was a self-funded project in which she performed covers of popular songs. One of the songs on the 2009 release was her interpretations of The Cure’s 80’s hit,”Just like Heaven.”

Her version is probably closer in sound to what you’d expect from a song with a title like that. Her soft voice is near angelic and the drums and guitars are simmered down in tempo and style to give what is a far more relaxed listening experience compared to the original.
