Two Live Covers of ‘Cecillia’ (from Two Door Cinema Club and Local Natives)

So this post is almost directly ripped from And Pluck Your Strings, which is an excellent blog that’s definitely worth checking out.

The first cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Cecillia,” one of my absolute favorites from them, comes from Two Door Cinema Club who made a splash with their indie dance pop. Enough that I even saw their song “I Can Talk” on MTVu while I was at college. Done for what seems to be an Australian radio show, there’s a short interview before their performance. It’s pretty different from their dance-y debut, as they do it acoustic. It’d probably be pretty cool to see live with the full band.

The second version comes from Local Natives, one of my favorite new bands of this year. Their version is a lot more immediately spiced up and they make it work really well with their sound. Their exceptional harmonies are in full force here and they give it a lot of energy. I think this one works better than Two Door Cinema Club’s, but then, they’re kinda at a disadvantage.

    The first one is a little bit lifeless, though charming.

    Some of the harmonies throw me off in the second one. And I’m for different, but I like how pure the sound of Simon and Garfunkle’s is for that song. Local Natives definitely capture the spirit of it though.

    Theres a cover band called The Marvin Berrys that does a lot of Beatles songs and such–I like their cover of Cecilia a lot though theres nothing incredibly unique about it.
