Mulberry is celebrating the sound of love this Valentine’s Day as part of the Mix Tape Tour. Five up and coming duos or bands have covered their favourite British love songs exclusively for Mulberry, captured on film at The Roost, an atmospheric house in London’s Hackney that’s all hard-wood floors, fireplaces and squashy sofas – perfect for our musical love-in.
Head to the Mulberry blog between now and Valentine’s Day to see performances from French-Finnish duo Olivia Merilahti and Dan Levy of The Dø , Summercamp couple Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey, Kacey Underwood and Alice Costelloe of Big Deal, BBC 2012 Sound Poll nominee Jamie n Commons, London-based indie-pop group Citizen!, and Camden-based NME darlings Tribes perform songs such as Love In Vain made famous by the Rolling Stones, Wish you Were Here by Pink Floyd and Sometimes Always by The Jesus and Mary Chain.
Also on the blog you can also find exclusive videos, photos and mix tapes from the likes of Kasabian, Hurts, Sunday Girl, Little Dragon and our new girl crush Lana Del Rey, who all performed as part of the Mix Tape Tour.
