Premiere: Eklipse – “Supermassive Black Hole” (Muse Cover)

By Darren Ressler

A supermassive black hole (SMBH) is the largest type of black hole, consisting of hundreds of thousands to billions of solar masses. It’s also one of stadium rockers Muse’s biggest songs to date. We’re pleased to premiere a unique cover of the UK trio’s anthem by Eklipse, an all-female string quartet hailing from Germany whose modus operandi is reinterpreting songs with a classical twist while looking absolutely fabulous in the process.

Their splendid version of “Supermassive Black Hole” appears on the foursome’s upcoming second album, Electric Air. We’re told the new album also features covers from artists such as Adele, Florance + The Machine, Massive Attack, Muse, The Clash, Nick Cave, Empire Of The Sun and more. Could a version of Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” (spelled “Eklipse,” of course) be on the horizon? Let’s hope so!

Eklipse begin their U.S. tour with Kamelot on September 2 in Columbus, OH. Electric Air is released September 2 on The End Records.
