Take my word for it – this track will make you dance. Shortly before going bankrupt and shutting down, streaming service RDIO put the Toronto foursome up to the challenge of covering a contemporary pop tune, to which the pscyh-rock group responded to by taking on the massively successful boy band One Direction. This is that cover, and it is one of the liveliest covers we’ve heard all week.

Weaves’ curious cover of 1D’s “Drag Me Down” will blow listeners away with their brilliant vibrancy and peculiar execution. The beat is infectious, the vocals unique, and the accompaniment tinged with a gritty energy likely to get even the shiest folks on the dance floor. Regardless of whether you enjoy One Direction’s music or not, this cover is well worth the listen.
