Displaying her versatility and an impressively no-fucks-given attitude to genre boundaries, nu gen figurehead Cassyette has recorded a cover of former One Direction star Harry Styles' As It Was, which spent 10 weeks at the summit of the UK singles' chart earlier this year.
Having started the summer supporting My Chemical Romance at a handful of the reunited New Jersey emo crew's long-anticipated UK shows, the cover is sure to be another profile-enhancing move from the multi-faceted English songwriter, aka Cassy Brooking.
“I covered Harry Styles’ As It was on BBC Radio 1 live at Maida Vale tonight on with Jack Saunders,” she tweeted last night, August 3, sharing a snippet of the cover. “Loving this song sm!”
