The Greatest Song In The World This Week

khfm.JPGThe internet is a veritable treasure trove for rare covers, B-Sides and the like. Whilst perusing youtube recently, I came accross a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s classic, Going Down by two of London’s indie kids du jour, Kid Harpoon and Florence and the Machine.
Stripped of the bold drums and flourishing electric guitars of the original, this acoustic version becomes a powerful yet sensitive dialogue between two people in a relationship. As with Florence’s other tracks, her voice is amazing, and harmonises perfectly against Kid harpoon’s lower tones, adding to the poignant mood of the song.
Both Kid Harpoon and Florence and The Machine are ones to watch. If Kid Harpoon’s first two EPs are anything to go by, then the album, due out later this year is going to be a killer. Florence and The Machine has been causing quite a stir on the London live scene over the past few months and has landed herself a slot at this year’s Glastonbury.
Check out the duo after the jump.

Have your say!
