“Immigrant Song” is one of Led Zeppelin’s many classics, known and loved for its iconic guitar and bass lines, as well as Robert Plant’s sky-reaching shrieks. But in the hands of 18-year-old Irish songwriter SOAK, the song has become a threatening drone. Building on pulsating synths and elongated guitar notes, Bridie Monds-Watson refrains from the frenzied heights of the original to create a creepy rendition highlighting the really rather brutal lyrics. Some director somewhere is going to pick this up for the trailer of their next dark fantasy epic. Take a listen below.
