Ben Hobbs’ Cover of ‘The Sunday’s Here’s Where the Story Ends’ Is a Melancholy Dream

+

It’s always a dangerous proposition when covering any song, never mind one so perfectly realized, and cherished as one like The Sundays’ “Here’s Where the Story Ends.” In his rework of the 1990 testament to the end of a love affair, London producer Ben Hobbs walks the high wire well, finding untapped veins of melancholy in the already-sad enough track.

“It’s a really nostalgic song and I didn’t want to approach it in the sense of just making a modern version of the track,” he says. “I approached it in the same way I would have done if I had written the tune and words myself because I wanted to get inside what the song means to me.”

The track appears on Hobbs’ EP Sweet Enough, out Friday.
