A lot of the time, when you hear about a good live performance, you hear the word “energy.” If that’s what you’re looking for, you’re not going to find it here. For their cover of The Jesus and Mary Chain’s “Sometimes Always,” Big Deal‘s Kacey Underwood and the beautiful Alice Costelloe take turns singing while strumming their guitars and showing very little showmanship or emotional investment throughout. And it’s perfect.
We’re celebrating the sound of love in the run up to Valentine’s Day as part of the Mix Tape Tour. Five up and coming duos or bands cover their favourite British love songs exclusively for us. Stay tuned between now and next Tuesday and watch performances from Summercamp, Big Deal, Jamie N Commons, Citizens!, and Tribes.
