Provo, Utah-based harpist, singer, and producer Goldmyth is an artist who has captured our attention plenty over the past few years with her own original songs. She has done it yet again, this time with a cover of the 2010’s classic, Gorillaz’s “On Melancholy Hill.”

She captures the essence of the song, bringing it to life in a new way, while also managing to be plenty faithful to the original.

You can find it streaming below, along with this wonderful description about its original directly from the artist below:

Once I played my electric harp on the lead line of this classic 2010’s sad bop, it was a match made in heaven.

This song is a perfect blend of upbeat and groovy with the undertones that get you in your feelings, All the things that I’m really about as an artist. We made this really beautiful music vid to set the melancholy tone just right. 

I never actually heard this song as a kid when it was released. But when I heard it for the first time on the way to play a show with my band, I felt like wow, this is a song I’ve been looking for for a long time. It feels like I have a kinship with this song, so I had to cover it. 

I recently had a song placed on the HBO show “The Sex Life of College Girls,” and there’s an audience finding my music for the first time right now, so I’m releasing this song as part of the sonic and visual palette of who Goldmyth is.
