I often have a chuckle to myself when we have covers submitted if I have no idea who the original artist or track is. I took a gander on YouTube yesterday and ‘6 Words’ has over 1.4 million hits and Wretch 32 released this in October!
On the flipside, I like the fact that there is a still a lot out there that I am completely unaware of. Like I always say, in music, it is good to discover things when you are ready.
Hats are Manchester-based duo John and Gary Kerr, originally from Ayrshire, they have taken on the mammoth task of covering the track and done a stellar job. ‘6 Words’ has showcased their vocal talents beautifully. With its climaxes, although not completely original, this still goes a long way to showcasing both the musical and production talents of the pair. A band name change should be considered as this is a complete bastard to Google!
