I've had this song on repeat for over an hour now; I just can't stop listening to it. It's so depressing, but the cover from Bastille is incredibly beautiful. The original... I would've looked over somewhere.
That awkward moment when the cover is better than the original.
Maybe if they had better music production and planned the song out better, it'd be a descent song music wise. Nonetheless, the lyrics are powerful. What I like best about Bastille's cover, other than it being purely amazing, is that it's really a cover, the music and tone is completely different than the original. It's disappointing when you listen to a "cover" of a song, and the beat is just sped up or there's more bass or something.
Anyway, go listen to it. Otherwise, look at these, you're here already anyway:
