Isle of Wight four-piece Coach Party have today unwrapped their cover of Clairo’s ‘Bags’. The release also comes with a video shot and edited by the band themselves.
Coach Party’s cover of ‘Bags’ is a result of the band’s restless lockdown creativity, as they explain:
“When Clairo released 'Immunity' we fell in love with every track, especially ‘Bags’. During quarantine we wanted to remain creative and make music together, so we decided to do a cover of that song. We made the whole thing remotely, sending our parts to drummer Guy who amazingly managed to piece it all together to form the song! Originally we tried to give it a bit of a change up, but Clairo did such a brilliant job on the original that we decided that nothing needed to change. We hope we’ve done it justice. P.S. love you Clairo!”
Coach Party’s debut EP 'Party Food' is available now on limited 10” vinyl via Chess Club Records.
Give it a listen.
