Elodie Adams Takes Nirvana’s Heart Shaped Box To New Heights

Elodie Adams shows her vocal range on her bewitching cover of Nirvana’s Heart Shaped Box.

Elodie Adams – Heart Shaped Box (Nirvana)

This impressive cover version has become somewhat of a viral sensation for Elodie Adams racking up over 1 million views on Facebook.

Elodie has been classically trained in both opera and violin from the age of 4, and it shows. There is a delicious gothic noir to her style as she effortlessly switches between seductive whispers and glass-shattering high notes. It is hard not to be drawn in by this intimate performance and those pink highlights!

She truly emotes every word, and when you understand she has endured the chronic pain condition Fibromyalgia, which forced her to take a 6-year hiatus from music, you can understand how every word she utters feels like a personal cathartic release.

She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weakI’ve been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeksI’ve been drawn into your magnet tar pit trapI wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black.
[Kurt Cobain, Nirvana – Heart Shaped Box]

More about Elodie Adams

Elodie began experimenting with songwriting and production as a means to cope with undiagnosed clinical depression and anxiety in her teenage years.

She first rose to prominence in 2014 as the singer/songwriter/producer of the theme tune to the Playstation Game “Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty!”. Elodie cites her influences as rock greats such as Muse & Queen, classical composers such as Bach and uniquely eccentric performers such as Bjork. We’d also throw a little dash of Tori Amos into the mixing pot.

Elodie effortlessly takes these inspirations and combines them with her electrifying string arrangements and soaring, powerhouse vocals to create something all her own.

Elodie is no stranger to cover versions in fact, she is making somewhat of a name for herself with her unique arrangements. Working alongside DJ Nick Jay the duo’s dreamy, high-octane club reworking of the Kate Bush classic ‘Running Up The Hill’ hit the number one spot on the Australian dance charts last year.
