School of Seven Bells - ' How To Love' (Lil Wayne cover)
A small bit of advice before listening to School of Seven Bells' cover of Lil Wayne's 'How To Love', do not listen to the original version beforehand. There's enough auto-tune to make you throw and a really cringe-worthy attempt at emotional sincerity. However, despite the flaws in the original, School of Seven Bells have managed to salvage some intrigue from the wreckage. They've smothered it in shimmering dream-pop but more importantly sang in tune of their own esteem. Okay, so it may not be the best choice of song to cover, the lyrics in particular are pretty desperate, but that's of course no fault of the Seven Bells.
