The English band Scars On 45 have had a lot of momentum over the last year or two with their super-melodic Fleetwood Mac-ish harmonies. One of the band's biggest assets is the voice of Aimee Driver, who was invited to join the band in the first place because of her ability to turn this classic Cure song into something even more beautiful and ethereal than the original.
"In every band's career or life, there are particular moments where something happened that spurred you on or gave you that kick on the backside to keep going, and for us, the songs were always there but there was always something that was kind of missing," vocalist Danny Bemrose recalls. "So Nova called me up and told me that he'd heard Aimee sing 'Friday I'm in Love' and he thought that her voice might work on this particular track that we were doing. We chose 'Friday I'm in Love' by The Cure because it was the moment that gave us Aimee, so to speak."
