Elm, a captivating Dublin five-piece, are relative newcomers to the Irish music scene. But what they lack in terms of a musical back-catalogue they more than make up for with an abundance of style and talent. They’ve just released new single ‘Amends’ with an accompanying video which I’ve included below for your viewing pleasure.
I haven’t done one of these in a while, a long while come to think of it. But rather than re-use the most commonly present sentence on my blog ‘sorry I’ve been busy bla bla bla’ I’m just going to get on with things, business as usual. (although to be honest I’ve been really busy lately with a number of projects and life events to name a few. But I’ll bring you up to date on all that during the week sometime) But for now, with it being the weekend and all..here’s your song.
Well technically it’s Sam Smith’s song, or is it Disclosure’s? But either way, to throw more confusion into the ring, it’s neither of above but actually a cover by Kodaline. (Am I making any sense?) Hopefully the video below, Kodaline’s Live Lounge appearance, will clarify everything.
For those of you unfamiliar with Kodaline why not check out my review of the Irish lads live slot at this years Indiependence Music Festival. If that doesn’t tell you anything about the band then you can find out whatever you need to know on the usual social media outlets and so on..
And now in a slight effort to re-insert the confusion once present in this post, here is the original version of the song in question.
And being the mad aggravator of public debate and discord that I am (why not sure) it’s question time. This is all becoming quite predictable now, but seriously I have to ask. Which do you prefer.. coffee or tea? (aka the cover version or the original). Or maybe you hate both and are one of those strange ‘hot chocolate people’? But if you have an opinion on either of the who songs,or hot beverages, please make use of the comment section below.
