Music | Holy Esque Cover Robert Palmer’s ‘Addicted To Love’


By Kieran Webber

Robert Palmer’s smash hit ‘Addicted to Love’ has been covered by Holy Esque today, 30 years since it hit charts worldwide back in 1986. Bringing their own unique synth driven sound to the track they have managed to blend all the fun and sexy elements of the original with their own unique twist.

Frontman Pat Hynes explains the idea and process: “We have always trodden carefully in the realm of song covers,” he continues. “The idea of working on someone else’s track before perfecting our own seemed strange and initially unappealing, but when the idea arose to interpret ‘Addicted To Love’ we really enjoyed the process. It’s a dark and somewhat sleazy track with a sense of sex appeal and fun. We love the original and thought we could show a lighter side of the band through this ’80s hit. I think we have achieved that and we may even feature the song in a few special upcoming shows.”
