Issues have recorded an acoustic version of their song “Never Lose Your Flames” featuring singer Ben Barlow and guitarist Lloyd Roberts from the band Neck Deep. This version of the song is from Issues’ acoustic EP Diamond Dreams, which is being packaged with the re-issue of their self-titled album, out today.
Issues singer Tyler Carter sounds excellent on this stripped-down version of the song, but I’m not a fan of Barlow’s vocals. I’m still undecided on Issues – some parts of their music is pretty good, but there are too many weird vocal effects and electronics for me on the whole.
Check it out and see what you think. In other Tyler Carter related news, you can hear his version of Paramore’s “Ain’t it Fun” here. It’s pretty damn good.
