Against the Current and Tyler Carter cover “Cold Water”

Missed Against the Current on the Vans Warped Tour? Have no fear, they’re bringing the tour to you – kind of. During the tour, they filmed some live covers in the back of their trailer, fully decorated with fairy lights and drapey curtains to create more of an intimate setting. And so, the Speakeasy Sessions were born.

Their first video was a cover of The Killers’ “When You Were Young”, which you can watch here.

They recently uploaded their second video of the Speakeasy Sessions, opting for a song outside of the realm of rock, “Cold Water” by Major Lazer featuring Justin Bieber & MØ. Justin Bieber didn’t feature in their cover, but this time, Against The Current was joined by Tyler Carter of ISSUES. 

Kicking off the cover with an upbeat melody, Tyler and Chrissy took an energetic approach to the song. Not only do their voices work together perfectly in the chorus, but they also stand strong alone. Tyler’s voice is smooth and consistent, while Chrissy hits the high notes with ease. (Seriously, 2:45 onward will blow your mind.)
