Monday Cover-Up: Week 17 feat. Alexander Helsinghof
Welcome to Monday Cover-Up! For our 17th edition of Monday Cover-Up we have a cover of the song “Reload” by Sebastian Ingrosso (1/3 of the now defunct Swedish House Mafia), Tommy Trash, and John Martin.
What Alexander Helsinghof has done is take a progressive house song, made to be played for hyped-up ravers and party-goers, and stripped it down to piano and some sparing acoustic guitar and strings.
With the piano taking over the melody, the track has gone from a club anthem to having a ballad-like quality. Swedish singer Alexander has an impressive voice himself, with a clear quality and nice tone.
If you happen to like what you hear, you can find plenty of additional covers on his Facebook page.
Take a listen below and see what you think! With only 180 subscribers on his YouTube channel, we think he might be a diamond in the rough.
