After absolutely adoring Slow Moving Millie's song Beasts and her cover for the John Lewis ad, I was really happy to find that I loved the entire album. Covers aren't always going to be to everyone's tastes, but for me these were really refreshing, interesting takes to listen to, that stripped them back to basics and explored some of the beautiful lyrics and meaning in the songs through simplicity rather than by amping them up. The outcome is a really beautiful, sometimes haunting album that's great to listen to in a whole range of moods, and there seems to be something new that catches your attention every time you listen to it. The two tracks that are Slow Moving Millie originals are also fantastic, I'd happily recommend this album to anyone (unless, of course, you're not inclined to enjoy covers).
