Listen to The Districts cover Bowie's 'Ashes to Ashes'

Since the back end of last year, The Districts have been on an upward trajectory that has seen them go from relative unknowns to one of the most hotly tipped indie bands around.

Their latest album A Flourish and a Spoil has already spawned a flurry of coveted singles and led to triumphant festival performances at the likes of Glastonbury and Governors Ball.

However, now the band have answered the call of Amazon Music and contributed to a new playlist entitled Amazon Acoustics.

The Districts have joined other acts such as Surfer Blood, The Walkmen and Nick Lowe in offering up an acoustic cover of a pop classic.

Let’s face it, you need to have pretty big balls to take on a song as iconic as David Bowie’s ‘Ashes to Ashes’. But credit where credit’s due, they’ve a pretty fine job.
