"It's Not Right but It's Okay"

In place of the original's elegantly off-kilter R&B, this live radio cover of Whitney Houston's cheater kiss-off rides chintzy synths and a raw clap track. But it remains faithful at the core, with Lauren Mayberry underselling it with the faintest U.K. accent. It's the sound of an indie-rock dreamer in front of the bedroom mirror.
