Words: Saam Das
We last caught up with HATS under their previous moniker of John And Garry, the sibling duo from Ayrshire. The Kerr brothers seem to have moved slightly further south now, to sunny Manchester, while still retaining the emotive spirit that saw me originally compare the band to Idlewild and Biffy Clyro. Even on their latest track, a cover of Wretch 32's new single '6 Words'.
"I found my treasure in you." Wretch 32's lyrics may be simple on '6 Words' but they certainly seem heartfelt, and the cover from HATS perhaps even elevates proceedings thanks to the sparkling synths and soothing vocals. A suitably warm offering considering the inclement weather. Compare and contrast versions below.
