Nothing will beat the original, but this comes close
singing starts about 1:00 into the video
I was a little bit hesitant at first posting this cover. The original is such an iconic song that really can’t be touched, however, this version by ETCHES is pretty spectacular.
Choosing to cover a legendary song is never an easy task, especially when that song is Marvin Gaye’s “Heard It Through A Grapevine”. However, England based band ETCHES certainly rose to the challenge and delivered. Taking on one of the most iconic songs of all time, ETCHES did a brilliant job catching the soul and vibe of the original and delivered an incredible version of the 60’s classic.
Though no cover will ever trump or touch the original, ETCHES version certainly came as close as you possible can. Their melodies matched up with the vocals perfectly, providing that powerful soul feel with a bit more of a modern twist.
