Got This Covered – Dakota Lillie & Taylor Fernandez Covers James Bay’s Let It Go
Let It Go was by one of the darlings of the critics at the moment, James Bay. This track Let It Go is one of the reasons why. Dakota Lillie and Taylor Fernandez are both students of a successful programme at New York’s NYU. The two solo artists have come together to put out this cover and you can feel the influences of Jack Garratt and Imogen Heap.
The cover from the pair has injected a bit of edge to Let it Go and Taylor’s Beyonce-esque vocals light up the track and along with the first class production from Dakota the pair have completely lifted what is already a great track. This feels more than just a cover, more of a re-engineering of a classic composition.
If this cover is a sign of things to come, the pair should join up to become a permanent duo and I for one, can’t wait to see what comes next.
