We love original music, but who doesn’t enjoy a good set of live covers? So, in that vein, we’ve decided to ask some of our favorite emerging bands to put together their own playlist of songs that they would love to perform live. Check out Electronic production duo Steep Steps’ Ultimate Playlist below!
Alanis Morrisette “Uninvited” – RÊVE front woman Athena Hiotis may be one of the few vocalists out there who could take on Morrisette’s stunning hit single, and don’t get us started on what we imagine would be some intense and complicated layers from multi-instrumentalist and producer Tony Correlli!
Amy Winehouse “Back to Black” – another brilliant piece that we could see Steep Steps taking to a whole new level!
Low “Murderer” – The folkish, crooning aura of this track was made for the subtle electronic brilliance that Steep Steps could bring to a live performance!
Pink Floyd “Wish You Were Here” – We’re more than confident that Athena’s haunting vocals would take the Pink Floyd classic to a whole new level.
Circle of Dust “Mesmerized” – A safe choice, but one that we think the duo could re-imagine in a unique way.
Queen “Bohemian Rhapsody” – A VERY bold and brave choice–many artists have tried and failed abysmally at taking on the iconic Freddy Mercury’s classic masterpiece–but we’re definitely intrigued.
Muse “Stockholm Syndrome” – Another unexpected and daring choice, but one we can get behind!
Bach “Invention No 13 in A Minor, BWV 784” – Ok, this would likely be the coolest modern cover of all time.
Queens of the Stone Age “Everybody Knows that You’re Insane” – the ballad-like quality we’re imagining taking place with this one would be a show-stopper!
St. Vincent “Cheerleader” – What Athena’s vocal style and Tony’s atmospheric composition could bring to this finale is giving us goosebumps already!
