TEAM*‘s cover of “God Only Knows,” released via All Things Go, is as simple as it should be. Featuring an acoustic guitar, vocals, and some percussion, the cover strays away from the band’s indie pop vibe. The Dallas duo layers vocals and eagerly sings some iconic Beach Boys backup vocal syllables: wah wah’s, doo doo’s, and bah bah’s. The cover fades out on the chorus accompanied by an floating falsetto. Stream the song below.
