MCOM 225: Critique #8 – Take Me to Church (Cover)

Yes.

This song’s been milked for the past two years.

But.

This cover is awesome.

A lot of people have tried to cover this song and have the right feel to it… a lot have fail. What his group does is make it their own! It’s so unique and entertaining and they don’t try so hard to perform it the way Hozier does.

Their stage presence is strong and they are all contributing, especially that they’re singing  it “acapella”, which also doesn’t take away from the essence of the song. They have good stamina considering that they’re running all over the stage, and it doesn’t take away from the lead singer.

Over all it’s a breath of fresh air compared to the over worked covers on YouTube…

#8 DONEEEE!
