whenyoung's cover of The Cranberries' 'Dreams' is as brilliant on record as it is live

If you’ve seen whenyoung recently, you may have been lucky enough to get a listen to a top drawer cover the band as part of the band’s live set.

It doesn’t take a genius to work out that The Cranberries' ‘Dreams’ is an all time classic, but the upstart three piece’s version is one of the best your humble Dork has encountered.

But you don't have to take our word for it, Dear Reader. You can experience its majesty for yourself, as the band have just released it in its full recorded glory.

A sweeping, shimmering oasis in a desert of lesser cover versions of far worse songs, whenyoung's take stays true to the original while packing a pleasing pinch of lemony freshness. Buzz is definitely lemony, right?

You can check it out below.
