Coverclub Guilty Pleasures
While many coverbands may think it’s cool to play and record Top 40 hit songs, covering popular tunes is really not done among indie bands with a bit of street credibility. However, for the latest Coverclub edition, 10 cool Dutch indie acts came out of the closet and recorded their favourite ‘guilty pleasures’. Want to hear the songs?
