London solo musicians PALMR and SHELLS team up to deliver a delightful rendition of Joni Mitchell‘s “Big Yellow Taxi.” A gentle cover glowing with charm, this environmentally-conscious song just got a subtly digital facelift.
50 years after the release of “Big Yellow Taxi” singer/songwriter SHELLS and alternative R&B producer PALMR breathe a contemporary spirit into Mitchell’s folksy original. PALMR sets in motion rivulets of celestial melodies and rhythms that coil together with indietronic whispers. The perfect yin to a simple production’s yang, SHELLS’ velveteen voice is a delicate force of nature. An opalescent cover that pays homage to the pioneering Joni Mitchell, PALMR and SHELLS have no stutter when it comes to turning classics contemporary.
