Frank Ocean is an artist whose calling card is an unpredictable, enigmatic and relentless creativity. He could release an album tomorrow (or he may never release an album again), and it could sound like anything in the world. It’s a trait Icelandic artist JFDR shares, so it’s no surprise that she’s a big fan of Ocean, and she’s decided to pay tribute to him by covering his Blonde track ‘White Ferrari’.
‘White Ferrari’ is already a stylistically fractured song, and JFDR pulls that attribute out on this version and expands it, stretching the track out into lush, abstract ambient beauty. It takes special ability to have the confidence to dare approach work as revered as Ocean’s and put your own spin on it. She proves that she has that ability here: her ‘White Ferrari’ is nothing but her own. Listen below.
