WSTR have shared the new double single, “Give Yourself A Hell”, featuring the covers “Give Yourself A Try” (originally made famous by The 1975). And also “Gives You Hell” (originally made famous by The All-American Rejects).
WSTR frontman and vocalist, Sammy Clifford started exploring some of his favorite songs and why he loved them. Speaking to covering “Give Yourself A Try”, Sammy admitted that the decision to cover the song was a personal journey.
“I was in a bit of a strange place when this song came out and I instantly fell in love with it as I’m sure a lot of people did. I was a little scared that it was a bit personal to cover, but I knew that I couldn’t leave it out”, Sammy shared.
Similarly, Sammy admired the second cover “Gives You Hell”, albeit with a bit more of a competitive slant. “Recording this song bummed us out so hard because we just wished we had written it”, Sammy recalls. “I’m so happy that I finally got to cover the song, it’s gonna give you hell”.
