the maine cruel summer

Pop-punk quintet The Maine always seems to have a gentle and melodic with impeccable harmonies, and this cover of Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer” is no different. According to Alt Press, Maine’s vocalist John O’Callaghan had said We couldn’t get tickets for Taylor Swift’s tour, so we decided to cover ‘Cruel Summer so we can have our own concert on the tour bus.” 

As a whole, The Maine’s “Cruel Summer” is light-as-air. The bass is more rounded, and the remake has less forward-moving motion, creating a very romantic version of the song. Forward lower harmonies and dulcet upper harmonies in the chorus left me wanting more.
