We’ve seen it over and over again: covers of Frank Ocean. Whether it’s a soft-rock ballad, an electronic touchup, or a just a sensual R&B re-take, Frank Ocean has seen it all — and so have we. As you would expect, the most common cover of Mr. Ocean is of his breakout ballad, “Thinkin’ Bout You,” however, thanks to the kind group of kids in Swiss Lips, we have finally been given a chance to see a whole new side to the crooner’s stellar presence.
Grabbing the reigns of “Lost” — one of Ocean‘s more groovy releases on channel ORANGE — Swiss Lips bring their hard electronic sound to a once very finger snappin’ kind of tune. After entrenching it in heavy synths and a higher tempo, Swiss Lips break the long-running trend of generic “Thinkin’ Bout You” covers, and start a great new trend of their own. And who knows, after hearing this cover, maybe we’ll start seeing “Lost” covers begin to pop up?! Only time will tell for that though, so as you wait, make sure to check out this excellent cover below and compare it to those thousands of “Thinkin’ Bout You” covers I’m sure you were likely to have listened to in the last few months.
