Introducing: FAINN – The Final Countdown

FAINN’s rendition of Europe’s hit The Final Countdown begins quietly and darkly. The song then moves into its main melody with the same melancholy tone. All of the vocals on the record are in line with the production aesthetics. FAINN successfully recreated The Final Countdown, while staying true to the spirit of the original.

This cover is part of a dark cover EP that FAINN will release this year. The EP will be released in installments, with the first cover being Europe’s The Final Countdown. It was recorded with legendary Grammy winning producer and songwriter Femke and doesn’t appear to have many overdubs. FAINN’s goal with this project is to show a different side of her artistry.

FAINN takes a risk with turning one of the most iconic songs from the 80s into a piano-based ballad, but it works so well to showcase FAINN’s talents as musician and performer. I can’t wait to hear what the next cover will be.
