We're not familiar with Melbourne's RVG, but we're pretty much guaranteed to check out anything Julia Jacklin does. Add in our love of cover songs, and you know we can't ignore the two teaming up to take on Bjork's "Army of Me." It's much more true to the original than we would have expected from Jacklin. Maybe it's a little more dreamy and a little lighter, but it's a quite straightforward version of Bjork's 90's classic. It's definitely worth a listen, and it will most likely force you to check out RVG's catalog if you haven't already.
On her Bandcamp page, Julia Jacklin talks about the cover:
"I just love Bjork and I love RVG. I was running on a treadmill which I don't do very often and I was listening to Army of Me over and over again to make me feel stronger than I am. Then I thought why not try and cover this song with another artist that makes me feel stronger than I am and I did! Was a good musical punch in the face to wake me up from a year of living a very small quiet life. RVG are one of my favourite bands in the whole world and it was just a real blessing to spend some time with them making music."
