Local singer-songwriter Regina Ferguson recently released a cover of Alina Baraz and Khalid’s “Electric” along with an accompanying video, just in time to add to your summertime playlist.

The video was shot by CHOP Media’s Alex Veazey on the shore in front of the Morris Island lighthouse, creating a warm, ambient feel that perfectly reflects the song’s laidback vibe. The coastal setting and lyrics parallel as Ferguson sings, “darker than the ocean, deeper than the sea.”

The cover, self-recorded and produced by Ferguson, was a chance for her to try her hand at the do-it-yourself approach to her music. “I’ve always liked that style of music,” says Ferguson, “but I also just set up a home recording studio so it was kind of just learning how to use my home recording gear.”

The track was mixed by Thomas Kenney and mastered by Sage Audio. You can hear Ferguson’s “Electric” on Spotify and iTunes, and the video (above) is now on YouTube.
