We love when stuff like this happens. Footage has just surfaced of Florence + The Machine bringing Nathan from Cold War Kids onstage at Coachella for a unique take on the latter’s classic jam Hospital Beds. Backstage footage of the artists comparing parts and melodies is interspersed with the actual live performance, which took place at Coachella 2010.
It starts off captivating the casual fan, then goes to a special place of harmonic intensity that brings the goosebumps. Enjoy.
Cold War Kids are hard at work on their next album. If by some chance you missed it, also check out Florence’s duet with Queens of The Stone Age nucleus Joshua Homme on the Cash classic Jackson. It’s good enough to name your son after.
