Talia Keys Releases Sultry and Scorching Cover of Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)

Music Review | 20th February, 2024 Talia Keys Talia Keys

Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) finds the singer-songwriter pivoting to a different lane than some fans may be familiar with; tapping into Eurhythmics' eternally-ethereal vibe while still mutating the soundscapes with futuristic synths, industrial guitar tones, shuffle on the snare and assertive kick drum thump.

Sweet Dreams transcends the label classic; the song has long levitated in a rarified air of pop music royalty.

Iconic Eurythmics vocalist Annie Lennox's pioneering androgynous style no doubt a North Star for Talia in more ways than one, and within Keys' stacked, stirring vocal harmonies lies an unspoken passing of the torch at play.

Talia's performance embodies the vulnerability inherent in the original number, yet her trademark bluesy verve swiftly bubbles to the surface, injecting a dash of authentic defiance.
