Hot Jam of the Day: The 1975, “By Your Side”

“By Your Side”

Digital Single
While covering one of an icon’s most beloved songs is always risky business, the 1975’s Sade cover captures a little bit of the overwhelming warmth and love of the original. Though auto-tune seems like a wonky choice for a song as intimate as “By Your Side,” frontman Matt Healy’s robo-croon is surprisingly successful, and that left-field approach offers some much needed divergence from the unmatchable original. This version is obviously never going to hit Ms Adu’s dizzying heights, but it will hopefully expose some young people to its timeless source material and inspire a few IRL tender moments in a time where everyone can really use them.
