Samia released Honey earlier this year, and a collection of artists are set to release their versions of the songs on Honey Reimagined. The first is from Blondshell, who also released her own fantastic self-titled album earlier this year. Blondshell takes on "Charm You," and while it's still a pop song under her reworking, it's more of an upbeat power pop song with some mid-90's alt-rock sounds to it. This is more along the lines of the poppier side of artists like Juliana Hatfield and Liz Phair than the modern pop of Samia's original. Blondshell is becoming a favorite around here, and her skill at making great covers certainly doesn't hurt.
Blondshell says of her version of "Charm You":
“I’ve been inspired by Samia for such a long time. She puts so much of herself into her songs, so much love for people and places. That was one of the things that stood out to me most about Honey - all of the friendship and joy that cut through darkness. I really felt that on ‘Charm You’ and I’m so happy to be part of her project.”
