Introducing the beautiful Megan Wyler, with her cover of Depeche Mode’s pop classic ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’, which was available for digital release from 9th June 2014 via Nowever Records.
Megan Wyler’s understated yet enchanting rework, showcases her lush indie-folk style and swaps the new wave keyboards of legendary pop guru Vince Clarke for a contemporary sound that's more first sunset of summer than last song at the disco. Effortless vocals breathe new life into the song’s catchy “hear-it-once, hum-it-all-day” earworm lyrics, with warm acoustic guitars, soaring harmonies and sweeping strings underpinned by a deep analogue synth bass and a driving kick-drum. It’s produced by Luis Almau, and co-produced by Peter Raeburn and Oli Julian.
The single is also featured on the soundtrack for the next installment of Sainsbury’s on-going Everyday Food campaign. The last song used in the series was a cover of Chaka Khan’s ‘Ain’t Nobody’ by Jasmine Thompson, which reached 32 in the UK charts and has had over 800,000 views on YouTube, while Megan set the tone for the campaign with her stripped-back interpretation of Kylie Minogue’s ‘Can't Get You Out Of My Head’ in 2013.
Megan Wyler's debut album ‘Through The Noise’ was produced by Adem Ilhan, and released by Nowever Records in December 2013. Her cover of ‘Can't Get You Out Of My Head’ also appeared on Warner Music’s acclaimed Young Folks compilation alongsideAlt-J, Fleet Foxes, Cat Power, Kurt Vile, Ellie Goulding and The xx.
The singer songwriter spent her childhood on a remote Colorado ranch, has an eclectic musical past that ranges from playing bass in a punk band, to producing avant garde off-Broadway productions in New York, working with a Balkan choral ensemble and touring with a gypsy string band, and now lives in London.
