Dark Captain acoustic version

And lastly for today, a song that's already much loved around these parts, but a different version. We were on about Submarines, the first single off the new album by Dark Captain, back in August. Here's some film of four of them (I think they can reach seven, if the weather's good) performing an acoustic version of the song at the Lo & Behold gallery in London. It ups the ante on the original in terms of intimate hushed vocals and cunningly replaces the guitar line with a flute. That may not be everyone's cup of tea but I must say it charms the pants off me.

And for comparison, the superb original. We'll be talking more about the album later in the month.
