Song of the Day: heat waves

Today’s song is heat waves by Lunelle.

Yeah, this is a cover of the psychedelic pop original by the Glass Animals.
This rendition adds more energy/edge, and I find the pacing shown here really works.

I just wish that I could give you that.
That look that’s perfectly un-sad.

It lacks the laid-back base hook, opting instead for sharp guitar riffs and rapid drum builds.

I really enjoy how it melts in and out of the slower bits and the ramped-up chorus.
The original is less ‘specialized’, and thus, I believe a bit more versatile.
Still, this cover works well for what it is trying to achieve (and I’ve had it on my playlist for a few months).

I’ve talked about hundreds of them, so you’re bound to find something entertaining.
