[Download] Strangers cover Shakespeare’s Sister’s ‘Stay’

 

strangers

The reigning champs of epic and emotional British Pop, Strangers, are currently holed up in their studio putting the finishing touches to their eagerly awaited début full length record. Whilst the album is given all due spit and polish, Dave took a breather to indulge himself in this cover version. We gotta’ say, taking on Shakespeare’s Sister’s Stay is pretty fucking brave. The track is so imbued with Siobhan and Marcella’s personality that all you can do is completely make it your own, and that can be hard with such a defining track. Let’s see how Strangers does.

Dave doesn’t;t even try to ape Shakespeare’s Sister (which is probably a good plan), preferring to take an amazing well written song and treat it like it came straight out of Stranger’s studio. The vocals are given a bar-room bluesy treatments that pairs nicely with the tracks haunting piano. The piano, of course, soon gives way to a symphony of pulsating electronic bass and rising synth riffs set to a skippy vintage drum pattern. Thanks Dave; that’ll do nicely until Raife has finished mixing the album, now get on with it!
