Escape (KONGOS Cover) – The Joy Formidable

The Joy Formidable dropped a surprise EP last month, and it’s filled with covers of songs by artist including David Bowie and the Misfits. Funnily enough, the strongest cover on it is the one they recorded of this track by KONGOS – a band they are currently on tour with. I haven’t heard the original but I’m pretty sure they’ve done it justice. This is such a delicate and beautiful lullaby, and should be the last thing you listen to before you go to sleep tonight. I can only hope that they play this at the NH7 weekender festival in December. Also, I can’t help but think of the Shins ‘Those to Come’ especially while listening to the guitar part.
