I’m always down for a Whitney Houston cover, especially when it’s from an artist I don’t expect. This is so right and definitely more than okay. CHVRCHES takes on the late great Whit’s 1999 classic “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay.”
The UK pop trio transform Dark Child’s production into a hypnotic synth piece of awesomeness. Lead vocalist Lauren Mayberry’s rendition almost gives the kiss-off anthem a sweet icy tone as opposed to Houston who was ready to cut a bitch with the original. God love her.
CHVRCHES are currently on a promotional tour to pimp out their debut album, The Bones of What You Believe, which features their latest single “Gun.” Their Houston cover premiered on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show. Check out their wicked version below.
