Here’s something of an unexpected treat in the form of a cover of Nick Cave’s ‘Push The Sky Away‘ by Americana UK favourite VanWyck. It was recorded live, originally, for a music channel but as Christine Oele explains it was so good that it needed a proper version as well: “I’ve never recorded a cover before, but when asked by The Influences to record a cover video I immediately knew I would chose this song. It’s always been an important song to me. In a way it’s a kind of personal anthem. ‘Just keep on pushing the sky away.’ That’s what I tell myself when things get difficult or when I don’t know where to go next. In that sense it has also been important to me in creating my last album The Epic Tale of the Stranded Man which also felt like a big leap into the unknown.
