Since the on-going pandemic, NPR, much like other businesses, have transitioned into functioning remotely. With doing so, artists have been required to attempt to recreate the magic of what it was like before the new normal.
For the latest edition of Tiny Desk Concert, Billie Eilish and her brother, Finneas, are the stars to perform an at-home performance for the series. But, the two are much more convincing than other acts who performed at-home, as they built a recreation of the oh so familiar Tiny Desk set-up with cardboard cutouts.
“I’m honored to be here, we have both been watching [Tiny Desk] for years,” Eilish says. “Quarantine’s been weird — I know you all feel the same, it’s been weird, we don’t know how long it’s gonna go. There’s barely anything that feels like there’s any hope in. But I think the future is something to be super hopeful in, and the unknown, and what is to come. We’ll be OK one day — maybe not right now, but that’s what’s making me hold on.”
Billie and Finneas performed the hits “My Future” and “Everything I Wanted”.
