Hear Tom Odell Cover Palma Violets – Yes, Really

Not everything about Record Store Day has to be totally brilliant. Sometimes it’s okay if things are downright funny. And the sea of ‘special releases’ don’t come much more curious than this one.

To mark Record Store Day in his own special way, BRITs Critics’ Choice winner Tom Odell, aka the male Gabrielle Aplin, aka Him Off The BBC One Adverts, made a claim for some indie rock grime by covering Palma Violets’ signature tune ‘Best Of Friends’. We’re not sure how well Tom would get on with Chili and the gang to be honest, he just looks a little bit too gentle. Still, the Palmas themselves found the whole affair pretty hilarious as you can see from what happened on Tom’s Facebook page below.

But before that have a listen to Tom’s cover below and let us know what you think.
