Back in 2013, Puddles Pity Party burst onto the scene with toned-down cover version of Lorde’s hit Royals he did with Postmodern Jukebox.

Musician Luna Lee is here to brighten our day with another unique gayageum cover – this time taking on Echo and the Bunnymen’s brilliant 1984 track The Killing Moon. We bet she could pull off a mean version of Bedbugs and Ballyhoo.
