Texas songstress Claire Morales is using her distinct voice to bring new life to a series of 1960’s classics. The latest edition is a sultry and smooth rendition of Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood’s “Summer Wine.” Morales’ subtle warble combines perfectly with Dalton Kane‘s gentle baritone in painting a decadent lyrical picture. A dark blend of country, folk, and rock, it captures the same haunting beauty of the original with languid guitars trodding forward to the distant echo of percussion. Here is what Morales had to say about the project:
Summer Wine is part of a series of covers with musical pals. I’ve been selecting 60s songs from favorite musical influences including Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood, Patsy Cline, Leonard Cohen and the Everly Brothers. These songs are a chance to explore one of my favorite times in music (and in fashion, culture, etc). It’s also just a great opportunity to make something cool with the people I dig.
