"I always like it when a male artist covers female songs and female artists cover male songs, it's always fun" says Chang Won Chang, known by his musical moniker Dr. Neanderthal. Just a month after dropping his sophomore EP, Dr. Neanderthal is back to honor women around the world. Reconstructing "No More I Love You's" bright 90's pop ballad for a hushed and abstract take. With echoes and falsettos included, the doctor has made the track all his own.
On Choosing "No More I Love You's:" I guess I covered the song because I always loved the song and always wanted to cover it.
On His Sophomore EP "Body:" I felt like this was the first EP where I used a lot more instruments, like the human body... there's less computing.
The Sound of "Body:" It sounds like bodies of water, mountains...very earthy, like rocks and dirt. Like visiting Patagonia.
Fave Track: "We Are Stardust." It was inspired by scientist Carl Sagan. He said we are all made of stardust - like from the cosmic bang. So I wanted it to sound like stars.
On Self-Indulgence: I also really like "Where Do Our Bodies Go." It's a bit self-indulgent (laughs) but I do like a three minute guitar solo, so it's cool. (laughs)
