Covers Wednesday. 7/04/10.


Another taken from BBC’s live lounge, this week’s cover comes from the oh-so-in-fashion Bombay Bicycle Club. I personally prefer it when bands take songs from completely different genres to cover, making their spin on the song all the more interesting, and that’s exactly what Jack and the gang have done with Jason Derulo‘s song ‘Whatcha Say’. The original song sampled here in the chorus is ‘Hide And Seek’ by Imogen Heap, a winding and captivating vocal journey. Jason’s use of it creates a standard R’nB song which enjoyed strong mainstream success. Bombay really change the song, with Jack’s trademark shaky vocals overlaid on gentle acoustic guitar, being another preview to the sound which shall be showcased on their soon to be released acoustic album.
