A Capella / Indie Pop / Soul / Covers
It’s barely been a week since Austin based quartet SPEAK first released their amazing single Peaks and they’re already back at it. And this time it’s a whole EP of covers. As the title Girlsongs suggests, they’ve covered songs exclusively originally done by female vocalists. And if that’s not enough, it’s all done A Capella. The EP’s got a pretty decent and daring selection ranging from Little Dragon’s (Yukimi Nagano) Little Man (my personal favorite) to a brave yet impressive take on Alica Key’s prominently overdone, yes you guessed it, If I Ain’t Got You. Despite taking on the music of some vastly renowned female vocalists, I’ve got to the say that they’ve managed to spray a coat of metaphorical fresh paint on these tracks, easily succeeding in the stunning display of their proficiency in vocals and arrangements.
