Kate Nash, whom we sorta love for all her charms and whimsy, put out a pretty good debut album, Made of Bricks. Nash writes songs that recall the kind of childlike moments when you spin and spin and spin in one place and it’s all very fun and makes you fall apart on the ground.
It’s a feeling that’s hard to describe. Here, however, covering The White Stripes’s “Seven Nation Army” she’s playing it absolutely straight. Just banging on the piano and accompanied with the drums. She manages to strip the song of it’s furor and anger, exemplified by Jack White’s ripping it up. Instead of a song that fills you with fury and vengeance at society, Kate makes you feel like she’s singing about a jilted lover.
