it’s been a big couple of days for cover songs. the horrors whipped out this cover of beyonce’s uber sappy “best thing i ever had” on bbc’s radio 1 and again, they prove they can do no wrong. the song has their somber stamp and the broodiness is delectably palpable. if only mainstream pop music sounded like this, the world would be a much different place. www.thehorrors.co.uk
the ever well-dressed english boys are back with their third album in july. thank the heavens, they’ve released their first single from skying. it’s a more subdued, but polished sound and it’s clear the band is maturing. this track is a nod to our favorite jams of the 80s and there’s nothing that frontman faris badwan’s voice can’t make cool. www.thehorrors.co.uk
