Following the lucid ambience of her 2013 magnum opus, Loud City Song, Californian singer/songwriter Julia Holter has released a cover of Dionne Warwick’s 60s ballad, ‘Don’t Make Me Over’. Its traditional and populist structure is a unique departure from the abstract, personal musings that elevated Holter to critical acclaim with Tragedy (2011) and Ekstastis (2012).

Bare strings resonate alone by way of introduction, and once they meet with Holter’s sumptuous instrumental voice, ‘Don’t Make Me Over’ unravels into a sophisticated and minimal blend of the present and past. “Accept me for what I am / accept me for the things that I do” sings Holter, an appeal applicable to her own abstruse but initimable musical sensibilities. ‘Don’t Make Me Over’ forms parts of a double-side 7”, Don’t Make Me Over/Hello Stranger, which is to be released in July via Domino.
