“The Sound of Silence” is a beautiful yet haunting song by the music duo Simon & Garfunkel. The song was written by Paul Simon, and was later remixed by record producer Tom Wilson. While the original was a commercial failure, the remixed version went on to receive great success and to this day it is still recognized as one of the most amazing songs out there. “The Sound of Silence” has since been featured in the 1967 film “The Graduate,” and was even covered by the heavy metal band Disturbed in 2015.

It’s safe to say that most people are familiar with the Simon & Garfunkel tune, adding an extra layer of pressure to anyone who chooses to cover the song. For one couple, they seemed to be fearless when they covered the masterpiece on “RocKwiz,” an Australian television live music trivia show. 

Emma Louise is an Australian indie-pop singer-songwriter from Cairns, who was born on July 16, 1991. She is best known for her single “Jungle” from 2011. She has since gone on to collaborate with a number of artists, including Flight Facilities, and even opened up for Sam Smith’s 2015 tour.

The band Husky is an indie-folk band from Melbourne, Australia, that features Husky Gawenda. In 2015, Husky and Louise joined forces to perform their own version of “The Sound of Silence” on “RocKwiz,” blowing away the audience and everyone who has since heard their version. The young couple highlighted their vocals and musicianship on the show and executed a stunning presentation of the well-loved song.

I have to say, this is the best cover of the song I have ever heard. The vocals are beautiful, the background music subdued as it should be, and the delivery is perfect. The song is performed here exactly in the spirit that it was written.”
