CHVRCHES cover of Prince’s “I Would Die 4 U”

I read a lot of hate comments on YouTube regarding this band’s performance of one of Prince’s epic songs. A lot of people didn’t like the way the vocalist sang the song and how they lack the “groove and passion”. I guess the point of creating a cover is to add your “flavor” or your identity to a particular song, if not, then it can’t be considered as a cover since one is just basically singing the melody.

What I really love about this version is that you know that it is not a Chvrches song because of the lyrical theme yet the band somehow “owned” it and it’s always fun to see Lauren Mayberry get lost in the music.
