Two of the most hotly tipped bands have joined forces (sort of). Chvrches stopped by BBC’s Radio 1 yesterday for a Live Lounge session, and one of the set’s highlights was the band’s cover of Haim’s “Falling.”
The cover (understandably) lacks the production value of the original, but makes up for it with a flurry of synthesizers. Lauren Mayberry’s voice doesn’t have the same folky flutter as Alana Haim’s, but it’s charming nonetheless. If nothing else, the song has indisputable novelty value. Listen to Chvrches cover “Falling” and compare it to the original, below.
