After setting the standard with his recent single ‘On The Road’, violinist Asher Laub is back in the spotlight with a creative new cover. One of New York’s most in-demand soloist, Asher has built his career and reputation on his expertise in improvisation, blending genres and styles with ease and dexterity. After surviving devastating health issues that could have been life-altering, Asher has proven that he’s back in stellar form, re-creating Maroon 5’s hit song ‘Girls Like You’.
Announced as a release to fill the void between his original compositions, ‘Girls Like You’ is the latest in a series of vibrant pop covers that Asher has created, following in the footsteps of ‘Attention’ by Charlie Puth and ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ by Bruno Mars. Keeping his eclectic pop style firmly in the public’s consciousness, ‘Girls Like You’ is a mesmerising rendition set to reintroduce the world to the timeless and wonderfully versatile sounds of the violin.
Released alongside an engaging music video that showcases the changing heart of Las Vegas, Asher breaks down Maroon 5’s hit into a romantic and textured instrumental, keeping the soul and central melody of the piece intact while heightening its more nuanced and intrinsic qualities.
An expressive piece that blends the past and present, ‘Girls Like You’ is a clever reinvention of the pop world, showcasing Asher’s talents for reimagining pop while simultaneously highlighting the more human elements of the genre.
