Tashaki Miyaki #6 - I Only Have Eyes For You / Keep Me In Mind (Alt. Version)


Tashaki Miyaki already have a long line of successful cover versions, from their opening singles' version of The Everly Brothers "All I Have to do is Dream" to an entire albums worth of covers late last year (still available for FREE via the LA trio's bandcamp), the band have seemingly found great enjoyment adding their signature hazy daydreams to some old classics.

Now, never one to rest on their laurels, the band have added another cover to their portfolio, this time a syrupy cover of "I Only Have Eyes For You". A track recorded on numerous occasions, arguably never better than The 50's doo-wop Flamingos version. Here their sweet, dreamy vocals and languid backing is soft and irresistible, gently lulling you to a blissful state of happiness - something Tashaki Miyaki have proven time and time again that they have the perfect knack of - check out their version of Roxette's "It Must Have Been Love" if you need further proof.

The band have also shared an alternative version of "Keep Me In Mind" from their debut EP which does very much the same thing, removing the fuzzy, stomping beat and scuzzy guitars of the original and adding in the most serenely beautiful strings and a wistful, soft acoustic - to put it succinctly - it's bloody gorgeous.
