[Listen] The Maccabees - "Lonely Boy" (The Black Keys Cover) in Radio One's Live Lounge

Another week, another BBC Radio One Live Lounge and this week UK's The Maccabees entered into the studio to lay down a cover. The band take on new Arena fillers The Black Keys' huge hit "Lonely Boy" taking the fuzzy monster and giving it a little smooth over, turning into a polished little number. A lighter version if you will that have some ghostly vocals thrown in for good measure. See what you think up at the top.
