Last month, Heartworms dropped her latest single ‘24 Hours’, and covered The Sisters Of Mercy at her live performances.

She first performed her take on the song at Heartworm’s recent show in Brighton. Taking place on Wednesday (March 22), the gig was the first date on the singer’s ongoing UK tour.

Heartworms also surprised fans by playing the cover again at her sold-out show at London venue The Lexington. This time around, she took her rendition to the next level by inviting a cellist to join her to make the performance “more goth”.
