The Murder Capital have shared their new cover of FKA Twigs’ “Cellophane” from their new EP Live From BBC Maida Vale.
Speaking with NME about the cover, frontman James McGovern said “It was quite last minute, but we took the idea of who we were gonna cover quite seriously. We were all really proud of it, and to just put it out there how big fans we are of Twigs’ work. That song specifically is so accessible on an emotional level due to just how gut-wrenchingly open she was when she wrote it.”
In a statement about the EP he added “When Annie asked us to do a live session at Maida Vale, covering FKA Twigs was an easy decision. ‘Cellophane’ especially encapsulates such a poignant landmark of heartbreak, and its innately exposed nature further allowed us to really connect with it.”
