Katie Crutchfield, who plays dreamy, pretty pop in the solo project Waxahatchee, and her twin sister Allison, the frontwoman for the raucous band Swearin’, are incredible artists individually. So it’s pretty awesome that they’ve combined their special powers to record a cover of Grimes’s already-amazing “Oblivion” for the teenage girls’ site Rookie (disclosure: I write for Rookie occasionally). If you’ve heard even one of those three musical projects before, you’re probably really excited about what you just read, and if not, get ready for a nice introduction to some really good stuff.
