There is not much sweeter in the world than the “blood harmonies” that some siblings can make when they sing. There’s just something magic about the way their voices align. I think that’s what first grabbed me about Cattle & Cane, a family band out of Teesside, UK.
I adore when a band can cover someone’s else’s song and make you listen to it a completely different way. (Favorite example? Obadiah Parker’s cover of Outkast’s “Hey Ya” – seriously, the lyrics are freaking amazing!) So when Cattle & Cane posted this sweet video of Helen and Joe sitting in an average bedroom singing The Killers “Mr. Brightside,” I had to watch it. Pretty sure that one of the other band members is singing from off screen, but I can’t tell for sure. Either way…
WOW. Simple. Beautiful. Love it. Hope you do, too.
Be sure to check out the band’s original music…it is just as stunning. You can pick up a free download of “Red,” a B-side from their latest EP, for free at their Bandcamp page right now.
Happy Monday, everyone.
