If You Like It

After releasing two killer songs, one live and one from the studio, July Child has continued with their varied releases with a cover of the unmistakably good Le Youth song "Cool", which samples Cassie's "Me & U". These Londoners stick with the electronic sound that Le Youth uses, except this time they take things to a more ambient level. Adding some haunting effects to the vocals, it deepens the overall effect of the song. The song leads into a simple electronic jungle bat that keeps the song powering forward. The overall sound reminds us so much of IYES's cover of Beyonce's "Crazy In Love". Everything about this cover is irresistible, from the purest of vocals to the light production that tiptoes over breaking ice giving the sense of might. We would absolutely say with this cover July Child is pretty "cool".
