Today, we've got the exclusive premiere of Evian Christ's revamping of London Grammar's 2013 song, "Strong." The producer is an avid fan of pummeling drums and grand production, and it shows. The simplicity of the original, which focused on lead vocalist Hannah Reid's singing of perseverance, gives way to booming synths and cluttered drums. Christ's sped-up, electro-infused rendition distorts Reid's croons, making them energetic instead of solemn.
Our premiere of Christ's take on the UK group's If You Wait single comes days after the Grammar trio's Lollapalooza performance in Chicago last weekend, and preludes their North American tour this November, which will hit major cities from coast to coast.
