Published Dec 09, 2011Married Canuck songwriters Lily Frost and José Miguel Contreras are teaming up for a collaborative show at Toronto's Dakota Tavern on December 21. The night will include a set of duets from the couple, plus some swing-jazz numbers by Lily and a performance from José's band, By Divine Right. To promote the event, the pair have unveiled a cover of Yazoo's signature tune: "Only You."
This finds the couple reworking the synth pop hit as a sparse folk ballad, as they harmonize gorgeously and make the song even more sweetly sentimental than it already was. The track sounds like it was meant to be heard as a quiet duet between lovers.
If you like what you hear, see the show details over at Facebook. The show doesn't appear to be holiday-themed in any way, which is a little surprising given that it takes place just days before Christmas.
