Tristen – “Just Like Heaven” (The Cure Cover)

Tristen can snap your heart like elastic. That’s not more evident than with “Just Like Heaven,” a gummy refresh of The Cure classic. Tristen removes the glossier, high-voltage elements to arrive at its innately dreamy core, inviting the listener into a scruffy lo-fi soundscape.

“Show me how you do it / And I promise you I promise that / I’ll run away with you,” she spins her remaining heartstrings into a threadbare cover-up. Both simplicity and electrifying complexity course through the song’s bones, and here, Tristen uncovers even more airy depths.
