This could possibly be one of my favourite Cure covers, from the incredible Papercutz. Put your volume up, let the bass throb and have a listen above. From about halfway, the unmistakable vocals gain a nostalgic and somewhat epic reverberation, after a more than fantastic beginning. The start opens with a haunting synth that descends into a nostalgic muffled drum beat. The singing takes on this enormous strength and power while managing to maintain a delicate facade. Every second of these four minutes rocks, to put it simply. The scope and depth here is huge, and matched with vocals like this, it's most definitely worth a listen. Stream the whole thing above and then visit Papercutz over here.
