We absolutely love it when people pay tribute to classics of the past, and even more so when they do it well. Enter Atlanta folk outfit Seven Handle Circus, a bluegrass influenced six piece with an affinity for 80′s music.
Recently traveling to New Orleans to play a packed show at Tipitina’s, the group circled up to do an impromptu recording of the 1984 synthpop hit, “Take On Me.” The end result was something uncontrollably smile-inducing, rife with nostalgic undertones. When asked about this song in particular, vocalist Shua Spencer stated:
Our suggestion? Catch one of these next few shows the guys have. Even if they don’t cover this live, we’re pretty sure it’s going to be a fantastic show.
