I am not normally a massive fan of cover songs, original versions generally tend to be better, but recently I started listening to a cover of La Roux’s ‘In For The Kill’ by The Cheek. I don’t really like La Roux that much, but the cover is really good.
The song gets built up really nicely, starting off with a simple beat, and then more sounds get added into it. I prefer their voices as well, and the addition of guitars is a good touch; La Roux’s version is solely electro. The lyrics aren’t great, but that is not The Cheek’s fault.
It is a good cover; The Cheek make it their own instead of mindlessly copying the original, and it is a massive improvement. Well worth the four minutes and twenty seconds it takes to listen to it.
