Single-handedly creating one of the biggest discrepancies between original and cover since, well, her own band’s reinterpretation of Jeremih’s “Birthday Sex,” Elin Kastlander of Swedish electro-pop duo jj reimagined The Outfield’s 1985 arena rock hit “Your Love” into a yearning, acoustic-guitar-driven slow jam. And she did it all in a Finnish sauna, while wearing eye makeup to rival Ke$ha herself, for Finnish arts collective We Are Home’s “Monsters of Pop” series. Kastlander is a master of pop indeed, always managing to make samples and covers indubitably her own. “Your Love” is no exception. Check it out.
