Emerging Tullamore folk/pop quintet RuggedWood have proved themselves a definite one to watch for 2015 with their latest YouTube hit. The group found voice in the unlikely combination of traditional instruments to create mainstream pop music and this gorgeous spin on Sia’s massive tune ‘Elastic Heart’ is a prime example. Listen to this beautiful stripped back cover, we have a feeling you’ll have this one on repeat!
