Swim Fan “California Dreamin'” (The Mamas & The Papas Cover)

Oklahoma City trio, Swim Fan just released their cover of The Mamas & The Papas‘ classic, “California Dreamin’.” Replacing acoustic folk-pop of the original is a electronic soundscape filled with sparse drums and pulsating synths. Gone are the lush male/female harmonies replaced with icy, slightly computerized vocals which really brings out the wintery aspects of the song on lines like “you know the preacher like the cold, he knows I’m gonna stay.”
