Indie music’s powerhouse trio, Boygenius, have given fans a new reason to cherish Shania Twain’s timeless hit ‘You’re Still The One’. The group, known for their remarkable songwriting and emotive performances, graced Radio 1 with a cover that’s both a tribute and a fresh take on the country-pop classic.
2023 has been a whirlwind for Boygenius, marked by their acclaimed debut album, The Record, and a series of successful shows, including a sold-out headline event at London’s Gunnersbury Park. Their journey this year has been nothing short of spectacular, leaving fans and critics alike in awe of their talents.
Following their recent rendition of the Celtic folk tune ‘The Parting Song’, with backing vocals from Ye Vagabonds, Boygenius now gift their audience a festive treat. Twain’s ‘You’re Still The One’ is a song that holds a special place in the hearts of many – a karaoke favourite known for its soaring melody and deep emotional pull.
In contrast to the original’s glossy 90s production, Boygenius offers a more intimate and raw version. Their approach to the song is a testament to the band’s confidence in their collective artistry. This rendition seems to speak of the members’ deep bond and mutual respect, or perhaps it’s simply their way of offering something heartfelt for the holiday season.
As 2023 winds down, Boygenius’s take on ‘You’re Still The One’ stands out as a poignant reflection of their journey and a nod to the classics that inspire them. Whether it’s a signal of their faith in each other or just a sincere offering for Christmas, it’s up to listeners to decide. But one thing is for sure: Boygenius continue to captivate with their unique spin on beloved songs.
