Out on their latest EP, Something Blue, check out this powerful video for Half Past Two’s iconic cover of the Beatles’ classic “I Will.”
“I sang an arrangement of ‘I Will’ in my high school choir and always thought it was a pretty song,” explains vocalist Tara Hahn. “Max (Beckman) and I do acoustic, ska covers on our YouTube, channel and this song was a great fit for that.
“When we decided to do a traditional, ska sound on the new EP, we remembered how much we enjoyed ‘I Will’ with our spin. We played it full-band, and it sang; it sounded fantastic. For me, ‘I Will’ is a new favorite, for sure.
“We went in and did all the recording and videos in the same day; that was a new challenge! We wanted to capture the energy of a live performance by recording together, and after this experience, I’ve never been more confident of the talent level in our band; this is the tightest we’ve ever been. It’s been fun showing off the breadth of what we’re able to do and do it really well!”
