CHVRCHES: XO (Beyonce Cover)
on 26 March 2018
After wanting to cover Beyonce's "XO" (from her 2013 self-titled album) for some time, Scottish synth-pop band CHVRCHES finally found an approach they felt comfortable with. Still intimidated to cover Beyonce, the three-piece crafted a pared-back, pretty version live on the Honda Stage at Power Station. While remaining faithful to the original, the percussion-less iteration is gauzy, delicate take.
