Kanye appearance aside, we've heard some amazing covers out of Zane Lowe's BBC 1 show lately - London Grammar doing "Wicked Game," Kings of Leon doing Robyn, and now Chvrches doing Whitney Houston's "It's Not Right, But It's Okay." It's awesome to hear Lauren Mayberry, with her delicate, clear voice, taking on a classic diva like Whitney's musings on leaving a bad relationship - she sounds totally resigned when she sings "I'd rather be alone than unhappy." And the rest of the band's synth-heavy approximation of the original's instrumentation fits perfectly. Check it out.
