Ben Howard- Hideaway (Kiesza Cover)

Gonna be honest, I never really 'got' Ben Howard. Like sure, Old Pine is good, and yeah his voice is like a combination of Fergie and Jesus, but I still thought he kind of blended in with all the flannel-wearing guys who gets too intimate with the mic while performing. And I thought all the girls who said "I looooooove Ben Howard more than I will love my first born child" (you've never heard someone say that? weird.) were cliche. But UGH, with this cover, Ben Howard just made me fall in love with him, goddamnit!! However if loving Howard's Hideaway makes me one of those cliches then i don't give a fuck cause this cover is AAAAAAAAMAZING (I always say amazing, but this is next level shit so I added the extra annoying a's for embellishment). Howard brings the Kiesza electronic rave-heads and the Ben Howard stoner crowd together with this effortlessly chill track. The vocals never falter once and he's singing it LIVE. Really the only thing I want to use to describe this track is about 20 "hands clapping" emojis in a row. However, even though this is fucking 2014, for some reason, we can't access those loveable iMessage emojis on a computer keyboard. Fucked up, but that's the non-progressive society we live in i guess. What is Congress up to if not dealing with the emoji-deficit plaguing the US and its international allies??
