Mazzy Star’s one of those bands I used to listen to back in the dizzay, and I wasn’t ashamed to admit I was a fan. Still am. Them, Portishead, Sneaker Pimps, Hooverphonic, Esthero…I love moody female vocalists soaring above dope sounds, and don’t care who knows.
I’m a man, baby. A full grown man. I know what I like, and Mazzy Star’s something I like.
Jesse Leach likes ‘em too.
The Killswitch Engage, Times of Grace and The Empire Shall Fall frontman has given Mazzy’s “Fade Into You” a once over, leaving his own indelible reggae stamp on it.
Leach released the tune as part of his AliKeN solo project.
He said of the track:
“This song is easily one of my favorites so I had to pay tribute as well as make it my own with this reggae version. I shot all the footage myself and edited it as well. The song was recorded in my bedroom with Garageband so it is Lo-Fi D.I.Y. I had such a fun time making this video out in a beautiful secluded spot I enjoy going to to write and reflect. I hope you enjoy it! More to come! This song is available on my SoundCloud page!”
