Melina Duerte is one of our favourite artists of the recent years. Her work as Jay Som is one of those lovely shaded areas of a venn diagram where emotion meets intelligence and her ability to display this through a selection of genteel indie pop is enticing to say the least.
We were thrilled then to hear that she had covered The Beatles hit ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’. Her bedroom-pop style works perfectly on this cover and the delicate approach she employs for all her work is even more greatly admired while covering such a well-observed track.
On SoundCloud, she writes, “I was commissioned to make this and they didn’t use it LOL well enjoy!!!
So listen and show the commissioner of this track just how wrong they were.
