GRMLN has released a cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” that will appear on his upcoming album.

The cover has stripped the original ballad and shrouded it in heavy guitar and hallows vocals. It adds a new dimension to the 1983 hit by removing the pop-vibe and adding in GRMLN’s own vintage pop-punk sound, that when combined with the over-processed, garbled quality of production makes this piece differ greatly from the original.

GRMLN is the brain-child of Yoodoo Park, a 21-year-old guitarist and vocalist who is set to release his second studio album, Soon Away, on  September 16 via Carpark Records.

On this album, GRMLN’s stays consistent with guitar-driven tracks. However the songs have become heavier as he tackles the emotional issues of letting go and saying goodbye. The intensely emotional lead-track, “Jaded,” can be streamed on soundcloud.

If “Time After Time” and “Jaded” are a good indication, the full album should be an raw  look into the ever-changing mess that we call life.
