Ducks Ltd. link with Jane Inc. on cover of The Cure’s “In Between Days”

After releasing their cover of The Jesus and Mary Chain’s “Head On” with guest vocals from Illuminati Hotties in March, Ducks Ltd. have continued their The Sincerest Form of Flattery cover series with their version of The Cure’s “In Between Days” featuring Jane Inc..

Ducks Ltd.’s Tom McGreevy said of their choice of cover, “Robert Smith is a genius and the Cure are the best and I absolutely love this song. It’s such a simple one but all of the pieces slot together so neatly. We listened to all the demos he made of it, and it’s cool to hear how clearly the fundamental parts of it are realized on the very first one, even though he doesn’t have any lyrics yet and is just wordlessly singing the melody (which I also do when we demo stuff!). We mostly tracked this one on a day off when we were on tour with Nation of Language, so the vocal was tracked in the front seat of a parked Mitsubishi Outlander in the middle of the night outside an Airbnb in Grand Junction, Colorado. It’s also the first thing we’ve done that our bass player Katie plays on.”

“Carlyn Bezic (aka Jane Inc.) has been a pal for maybe a decade and is one of the best musicians in Toronto,” McGreevy added. “I’ve seen her in so many bands and it’s been so cool to watch the Jane Inc. project come together, as it feels like she just keeps refining and perfecting a creative vision that was already clear in some of the first projects I saw her in. I’ve wanted to do something with her forever, so I was super excited she said yes to this!”

Ducks Ltd.’s cover of The Cure’s “In Between Days” featuring Jane Inc. is out now. They’ll play London’s Windmill Brixton on September 15. Visit ducksltd.co/tour for tickets.
