Stripped down to the chords, this cover removes Sam Smith's theatrical drama, and replaces it with dramatic stillness. Where Smith's version is a larger than life plea for company, Bear's Den
has supplied the version that plays after the chips have fallen. It's hopeful in it's sobriety, defunct of the activity of desperation, but desperate none the less.
The track will be available on the forthcoming Agape EP
, featuring covers of Sylvan Esso
and a folk tinged cover of Drake's "Hold On, We're Goin' Home."
