Covering a classic can be a tricky affair and covering the greatest Christmas song of all time is trickier work still but We Cut Corners have done both, and passed with flying colours.
The Dublin duo have covered Jona Lewie’s Christmas classic ‘Stop The Cavalry’ in aid of First Fortnight, a mental health festival which is happening in the first two weeks of January. There’s is a beautiful and gentle rendition of the brass filled classic, attributing their supreme ability to create intimacy in their music, We Cut Corners have broadened the song’s wishful, reflective and heartfelt narrative. Swells of lush strings meet soft harmonies and delicately performed vocals as the duo have pay tribute to the classic in the best way possible, and for a good cause too.
‘Stop The Cavalry’ is out now as a digital download from iTunes. We Cut Corners will also headline the First Fortnight festival on January 10 in the Button Factory. Click here for more info.
