Not so long ago, Athens, Georgia duo Cicada Rhythm embarked on a rather unique project.

Following on from the release of their 2015 self titled debut, the alt-folk two-piece initiated a series of covers entitled ‘Stuck In My Head’. We’re previewing a new cut from the series, a fascinating take on Billie Holiday’s classic ‘God Bless The Child’. Cicada Rhythm’s take on the track relaxes an already placid song to the point of tranquillity; Andrea DeMarcus‘ beautiful vocal work exploring the nuances of enunciation and soul, whilst the musical backing of her fluent bass work and Dave Kirslis‘ softly voiced, lilting guitar work provides a quietly persuasive, subtly rich soundscape.

The ‘Stuck In My Head’ project is still in it’s infancy – this is only the second of the series, the first being a charming take on Bob Dylan’s ‘Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright’ – but already it’s proving itself to be an intriguing and rewarding project.
