It’s been a few years since Hannah Georgas released her last full length album For Evelyn, but the Canadian singer-songwriter has finally returned with an EP of cover songs called Imprints. The first song available from the new album is Georgas’ cover of “No Need to Argue” by The Cranberries.
Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius join Georgas to transform the song into a 1980s brat pack break up moment. With an easy drum machine beat, synth, sound effects, and luscious harmonies, the effect is decidedly lighter than The Cranberries’ solemn and slow dirge.
“The Cranberries had such an impact on me growing up and is still one of my favorite bands”, Georgas said in a press release. “There is so much emotion and realness behind Dolores O’Riordan’s lyrics and in my opinion, this track is one of the most simply and perfectly put ‘break up’ songs.”
Additional tracks on the album include covers of the Eurythmics, Janet Jackson, and Tegan and Sara. Imprints will be released on March 8.
