Swansea starlet Eleri Angharad is following up the recent success of the sassy anthem “Snake Like You” with a country take on Grime phenomenon Stormzy’s smash hit “Big For You Boots”!
Speaking about the song, Eleri said “I’ve wanted to do my own take on a cover song for ages, and originally planned on releasing ‘These Boots Are Made For Walking’. I play it live and really enjoy performing it too. After bouncing some ideas around in the studio we joked about covering something completely different to my style. I’ve listened to a lot of Nelly recently and his collaborations with Florida Georgia Line and the recent Chance the Rapper Country cover of ‘Hot in Here’ for Jimmy Kimmel got us all thinking. ‘Big for your Boots’ just sounds like a country song waiting to happen so we took a chance and went with it! I think it’s great now that we can blend genres and really have fun with music. There’s no rules these days!”.
This version was arranged in Millie Blooms’ studio, by Eleri, Dan Fry and Millie herself, who
you’ll be hearing a lot more of in future releases, as she joins Eleri’s team as Executive Producer
for album number 2. All instrumentation on this song is arranged by Millie and Dan Fry of Millie
Eleri further adds “It was a really fun process rearranging such a different sound, we broke
down the lyrics and restructured it so it had more of a traditional Chorus section and switched
up some of the slang for some fun American country-isms. I don’t think anyone should take this
too seriously but it’s sure been fun sending it out to my friends and seeing if they can guess what
song it is”.
Throughout this rendition, Eleri produces a performance that highlights the vibrant essence behind the animated undertones of her incredible vocals, which easily takes centre stage & creates a mesmerising production.
This release highlights Eleri’s musical creativity & allows listeners to experience this gifted artist’s ever-evolving musical style. You can easily find yourself listening to this uniquely incredible version for hours on end!
