In true artistic fashion, this cover doesn’t simply copy the musical elements of the song, but rather – adopts the central emotion and intention of it, and applies that to a fresh perspective & style.
Book of Shame
Book Of Shame are categorically an act who skillfully walk the line between eclectic and self-assured – knowing precisely who they are, how they want to sound, yet also offering up a consistently interesting and often surprising album that never once becomes tiresome.
“The song explodes into its final field, reverting back to this idea of the land of hope and glory, these references to death and suffering; the music is heavy and chaotic, vibrant and loud, and the vocal offers a similar level of madness and desperation as the words pour through.”
Killing Pickle is a great track, one with an immersive sense of rising passion and energy, and the sort that offers up an immediately familiar intro once you’ve heard it even a single time. An indie dance-floor smash but also something to provoke a slightly deeper level of thought at the same time. Well worth a spin.
Book of Shame’s most recent release Compatibility is like an unforgettable LSD trip through time and space, that’s as lucid as it is alluringly ambiguous.
