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.
