[COVER] Capital Cities Cover Madonna's "Holiday"


Madonna's 1983 breakout single "Holiday" is arguably one of the most iconic pop songs of all time. It's a timeless tune that launched Madonna's incredible career worldwide and hasn't lost any of its luster over the last three decades.

Rising Los Angeles synth pop duo Capital Cities has been hugely inspired by some of the great pop of the past and decided to cover Madonna's "Holiday" to tap into some of its retro glory and have an opportunity to introduce their music to more people. It sure is a gutsy move to cover a song so well-known as "Holiday," but the two Angelenos do a very fine job paying tribute to the track while also giving it a contemporary new twist that shows off what they're capable of.

Sweetly luscious and hella bouncy, Capital Cities' cover of "Holiday" is pure synth pop goodness that I'm confident even the biggest and most purist Madonna fan will be able to appreciate. The duo's remake of "Holiday" comes with a bit of an unexpected ending that adds some crunch to all that pop sweetness.
