    Isolated the vocal tracks and threw a different chord progression underneath it.

    I must be terrible at listening to music but is this a cover or just altered the song? It sounds like the original vocals but it also doesnt

    Only the vocals are original; however, the vocals are mixed differently, and the context provided by the new chord progression interacts with the melody in a different way than the original.

    Constant horror and bone-deep dissatisfaction.

    Sounds like a track taken from the last Seaway record.

    wow, so the vocals sounding like a different melody is kind of the ears being "tricked" by the music played in a different key?

    i may get better but we won't ever get well Prestigious

    tbh Nirvana meant for smells like teen spirit to be relatively radio accessible and it's fairly standard songwriting so this makes a lot of sense. still neat
