COIN COVERS A CLASSIC WITH ‘CECILIA’ [FREE MP3]

If you’ve been keeping track of the Nashville group Coin, you’re probably just as excited as I am to hear new songs from these feel-good indie rockers. If this is the case, or even if you’ve never heard of them before, you’re going to love their cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s 1970 single “Cecilia”.  Covering such a classic is no easy task, but Coin does it just right. If it’s even possible, and not total blasphemy for me to say, this cover may be even better than the original. With their usual upbeat and carefree tone, Coin somehow keeps the song’s classic essence but moves it to different realm, creating a final product entirely their own. After having played the track during several of their shows, the band has now delivered it to us free of charge after a Facebook like here. Enjoy!
