Ember Island Shares Soulful Cover Of Rihanna’s “Umbrella” + Music Video

Ember Riri

Swedish group Ember Island has created a formidable presence with their covers of songs throughout genres, from Jack Ü’s “Where Are Ü Now” (remixed by Flaxo) to Radiohead’s “Creep.” With effortless vocal chops and gentle, clean production, the trio has cultivated a spiritual sound that’s nearly impossible to emulate. Today the group has gifted us with yet another impressive cover, this time their smooth take on Rihanna’s 2007 hit “Umbrella.”

With this cover Ember Island has turned a conventional pop track on its head, giving it an infectious, tender new sound. The track has a delicate production that utilizes subtle percussion, guitar riffs and atmospheric synth builds. This coupled with the moving vocals creates a heavenly overall vibe. The music video for the track drives this feel home with a muted color scheme and scenes of each band member performing. Check out the song and video below. Enjoy!

Diplo and Skrillex's collaborative single "Where Are Ü Now" as Jack Ü' also featuring Justin Bieber continues to make waves worldwide letting both artists step into the pop world like never before.

Well today we get to hear an unexpected remix of the song which uses the acoustic cover version of the song from Ember Island as the base. Flaxo, a TSIS regular who's brought us remixes of Bingo Players "Knock You Out" and Yellow Claw's "Shotgun" has stepped up to the plate. He layers in new melodies, exciting percussion elements and a guitar and horn filled drop that make just enough room for Ember Island's vocals to lay on top perfectly. Stream the premiere of the song below and grab a free download. Enjoy!

Here are some words from Flaxo himself on the remix

""I stumbled on this Ember Island cover of the Jack U/Bieber collab Where Are U Now and fell in love instantly. I've been experimenting with some different rhythmic formats and different instrumental styles that incorporated some more organic drumming and basslines with more "synthetic" stuff and when this fell on my lap I thought it made perfect sense to take some of the more uplifting, organic material I had written and put it together with this really vulnerable, personal vocal cut from them. It's intended for moments on a train or a bus where you forget where you are for a sec and you think back to something that happened 5 years ago." 

We've also been informed Flaxo has an original EP in the works so be on the lookout.
