WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
Monica da Silva has a tender new take on Lou Reed's "Walk On The Wild Side". Da Silva, along with musician and producer Chad Alger, really wanted to bring out the softer side of a song with heavy subject matter.
"When Lou Reed released "Walk On The Wild Side" in July 1972, the song was considered taboo. The lyrics were groundbreaking and risqué for their time, telling stories not usually told in rock songs," says da Silva. "We thought it be cool to keep the lo-fi, retro feel in the music, and combine it with a soft-spoken, matter of fact vocal delivery."
