boygenius Delivers on Sinead O’Connor Cover


Cover songs often reveal so much about the artists who cover them. The music of Sinead O’Connor is deep and strikes a nerve with whoever hears it. For boygenius their sound is as catchy as it comes and their cover of “The Parting Glass” with Ye Vagabonds is epic to say the least. Stream it below.

The subtleties in the vocals and how the song starts is amazing. The girls’ vocals are epic and shine through easily. The way they give the song an almost spiritual tone is masterful. The way they deliver on the cover takes you away while it plays out. The song has its moments yet boygenius makes it hard to listen to the original with this cover.

The new cover can be heard above or wherever you stream music.
