Take Cover Tuesday: Sir Sly x Drake

SIr Sly

Los Angeles-based Sir Sly has seduced me with its melancholy lyrics and sleek synth. Extra points for hip haircuts and attire.

I was a fan before seeing them last week at USC’s Spring Fest, but after watching the guys showcase their craft live, I can’t help but indulge myself with their EP “Gold.” I’m low-key obsessed with the track “Ghost.”  It’s haunting. It’s sexy. It’s relatable.

While I sit here with a gut feeling that Sir Sly is inching towards the cusp of a successful career in the industry, I’m further impressed by this Drake cover the band recorded about a month ago. It has a flair of simple elegance, which I appreciate. Plus, lead singer Landon Jacobs has a voice that’s the musical equivalent of dipping strawberries in melted chocolate.

Next week, Sir Sly is heading out on tour with The 1975.  I’ll be attending. Will you?
