Lydia and Becky, Wayward Daughter are a band on youtube who I love (and stalk) so much.
They post videos on youtube of their renditions of songs as well as their originals. I found them through their cover of Loverboy and being a You Me At Six fan, I was obviously delighted. Through a good two hours of thorough research (stalking) and crying at their sheer perfection, I had another band to intensely follow (stalk). There is something so raw - not in a uncooked meat kind of way - about them.
Other than the fact that Lydia and Becky cover songs that are more my music taste than some youtubers cover, I love that they write their own songs and moreover that they're insane. One day, I had their original Something New on for literally the whole day. I heart this so much. The lyrics are so...intricate and the melody and guitar is wicked...just listen to them.
Due to them being incredibly talented (and pretty), I cannot rave about them enough. They cover a lot of Paramore and you can imagine how supergreatperfect that is. You should definitely check out their EP on iTunes which is awesome: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/artist/way...
Picking a favourite original of theirs would be me listing all of their covers so THIS is the one I'm listening to at the mo!
Favourite You Me At Six cover.
