First Aid Kit’s own records have gotten progressively poppier in recent years, but their cover choices still stick with their winning formula: beautiful harmonies, an acoustic guitar, maybe a little subtle percussion – and did we mention the harmonies? We last heard them covering 20 different Leonard Cohen songs in a stunning tribute concert (oh, they did Lorde too for good measure), and now they’re back to tackle Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill.”
It’s the latest installment in the Spotify Sessions series, the biggest new thing in cover songs in the past year. And one of the best yet. The Swedish duo make the most of the song’s beautiful cascading melody, showing just what the sisters can do when they put their voices together. Listen below.
