HALEY BONAR COVERS THE CRYSTALS IN THE STYLE OF JOY DIVISION
“AND THEN HE KISSED ME” LIVE @ OLD GRANADA STUDIOS PREMIERED BY BROOKLYN VEGAN
WATCH FULL LOW FOUR EPISODE FEATURING FIVE OTHER SONGS
Haley Bonar recently performed live on Low Four, the new super-HD live music platform based at Manchester’s historic Old Granada Studios.
Most notably, she covered “And Then He Kissed Me” by The Crystals (in the style of Joy Division). This bonus track was premiered by Brooklyn Vegan, who said: “She puts a dark spin on the song, and you could imagine her performing this version on one of Tony Wilson’s Granada TV shows alongside Joy Division, Gary Numan or The Smiths.”
Fans can now also watch the full Low Four episode, featuring Haley and her band performing five songs, including the BBC Radio 6 Music A Listed singles “Kismet Kill” and “Stupid Face.”
Photographer Mike Hughes also attended the session, with The Line Of Best Fit publishing his images as a behind the scenes photo gallery.
Last month, Haley and her band completed a triumphant sold-out UK tour, as well performing live on Later… with Jools Holland, on Lauren Laverne’s BBC Radio 6 Music show, and BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends programme.
A fresh run of UK dates has just been announced for Spring next year, culminating in a London show at The Dome on 6th April 2017.
