MP3: Bastille – “No Angels” (A Cover of TLC’s “No Scrubs”)

December 11, 2012 1 comment

Bastille first caught my attention with a powerful rendition of City High’s one hit wonder. They have now caught it again with this cut off their recently released mixtape. Bastille does a great job of turning corny pop songs into dramatically toned masterpieces. The addition of Ella’s vocals are a nice touch leading up to the climactic ending chorus. You can hear this quartet do some renditions of tracks from other artists like Fleetwood Mac, Frank Ocean and The Fugees on their project Other People’s Heartache Pt. 2 which is freely available here. Do yourself a favor and download part 1 while you are over there.
