The Scottish trio give the HAIM single a light and respectful cover.

Prides: 'If I Could Change Your Mind' [Cover of the Week]

In this article…

Prides is a band that I saw during the 2013 CMJ Music Marathon, and I really, really enjoyed their set. I've written this about them before, but they remind me of a male equivalent to CHVRCHES. It's shimmering, beautiful synth pop/rock that just takes off and never releases you from its grasps.

Just yesterday, the trio's cover of HAIM's "If I Could Change Your Mind" for Naked Noise, and it's really, really good. Stewart Brock has such a nice voice. It's light and tender while establishing a presence, and the vocals really do the song justice. Unlike Bruce Springsteen's gruff cover of "Royals" by Lorde in New Zealand, which was awesome but just so rough-sounding at times, this cover sticks to the script of the original. Plus, between just the three members, they are almost able to completely replicate the sound of the original. It took a little bit of ingenuity, but they pulled it off.
