Squirrel Flower Covers Caroline Polachek

It may be the b-side of a new single, but considering how obsessed we are with covers, we kinda need to cover this one. Squirrel Flower has recently released a single titled "Take It or Leave It," and for the b-side she has included a cover of Caroline Polachek's "So Hot You're Hurting My Feelings." Despite this being a cover, this sounds like it could have been included on Squirrel Flower's 2020 album of the year candidate I Was Born Swimming. For a cover, this one fits the artist perfectly. 

Ella O'Connor Williams (aka Squirrel Flower) explains the story behind the cover: For the last show of my truncated tour in March, my band and I decided to play a cover of ‘So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings’ after rehearsing it once during sound check (we are all huge Caroline Polachek fans),” says Williams. “It was the last song I played live before quarantine. I got home from tour and immediately recorded it in my basement.”
