Ducks Ltd. collaborates with Jane Inc for the cover of The Cure’s “In Between Days”
Ducks Ltd have teamed up with fellow Toronto native Jane Inc for a cover of The Cure’s “In Between Days”. The track as part of the second installment of their cover series, The sincerest form of flattery.
At the start of the track, Ducks Ltd stays true to the original with the bass and guitar riffs before adding their signature sound for a jangle pop twist. Jane Inc’s supporting vocals provide a unique nostalgic edge to the cover.
“Robert Smith is a genius and the Cures are the best and I love that song,” says Tom McGreevy of Ducks Ltd. “It’s so simple, but all the pieces fit together so well. We’ve listened to all the demos he’s done of it, and it’s cool to hear how clearly the fundamental parts are done on the whole premiere, even though he doesn’t have any lyrics yet and just sings the melody without a word (which I also do when we’re making demos!) We mostly followed this one on a day off when we were on tour with Nation of Language so the voice was followed in the front seat of a Mitsubishi Outlander parked in the middle of the night outside an Airbnb in Grand Junction, Colorado This is also the first thing we did which our bassist Katie plays.

“Carlyn Bezic (aka Jane Inc) has been a friend for maybe a decade and is one of Toronto’s finest musicians,” McGreevy continues. “I’ve seen her in so many bands and it was so cool to see the Jane Inc project come together, because it feels like she just keeps refining and perfecting a creative vision that was already clear in some of the first projects I saw her in. I wanted to do something with her forever, so I was super excited that she said yes to that!
PS: Someone once told me that Robert Smith only responds to emails one day a week and it’s always IN CAPS. I don’t know if that’s true, but I really want it to be. Please also email me Mr. Smith!
