February 4th, 2014
Is it just us or are more and more artists covering songs — and killin’ it? The following are just another handful of covers we’ve dug up recently and we guarantee you that you’ll be hooked immediately. Check it out and hop on over to the comment section to share with us some of your fave covers right now!
Miley Cyrus covers Arctic Monkeys’ Why You Only Call Me When You’re High
Miley’s cover of the British rockers the Arctic Monkeys didn’t make it to final broadcast of her MTV Unplugged session and we’re totally confused why it didn’t. Not only is this cover of Why You Only Call Me When You’re High crazy-spot on, but Miley’s voice soars higher (pun kind of intended) on this track than some of her own tracks. Love, love, love.
The National cover Perfume Genius’ Learning
Indie rock fans can rejoice at this magical pairing: The National covering a song by Perfume Genius? Total genius move.
Sam Smith covers Bruno Mars’ When I Was Your Man
This is a bit of a throwback, but we just uncovered this little hidden gem of British singer Sam Smith belting it out to Bruno Mars’ hit When I Was Your Man. Two equally charming guys who could probably cover each other’s songs with such ease and soulful passion.
Ellie Goulding and Angel Haze cover James Blake’s Life Round Here
Two badass ladies, Ellie Goulding and Angel Haze, team up to cover James Blake’s Life Round Here. The result is a euphoric blend of Goulding’s layered vocals and Haze’s always-edgy verses.
Chvrches cover Bauhaus’ Bela Lugosi’s Dead
For the upcoming soundtrack for Vampire Academy, Glasgow trio Chvrches cover Bauhaus’ classic Bela Lugosi’s Dead. The band is no strangers to cover — having covered everything from Whitney Houston to Haim — and they prove that they’re not just masters of their own sound, their masters at applying that to other people’s songs as well.
Half Moon Run cover Chvrches’ Mother We Share
Speaking of Chvrches, Canadian band Half Moon Run take a stab at the electro-pop group’s single Mother We Share, but give it a stripped-down acoustic spin that’s ridiculously catchy.
