This cover of “Seven Nation Army” is a nice song to listen to as summer is slowly fading away. As I listen to it, I imagine sitting inside a jazz club (candles on every table of course) and the band begins playing this song. Clapping shortly follows, and everyone has a smile on their face — because who doesn’t love “Seven Nation Army?” With a trumpet and piano? Yes, please.
When I initially listened to it, I felt like I was listening to Cake, Maroon 5 (“Songs About Jane” era) and Amos Lee. Ben L’Oncle is from France and his cover might not appeal to everyone. However, one has to appreciate his attempt of turning a White Stripes song into something completely different from what it originally was intended to be.
So Kudos to your originality, Ben! I will be playing this on repeat today.
For those who can’t even fathom the idea of “Seven Nation Army” being covered, here is the original video and song in all its glory:
