Readapting the 1981 queer anthem that was Homosapien, by Pete Shelley of The Buzzcocks, the unmistakable Ladonna Rama settles into the groove with a natural air of connection and colour.
Summer vibes in strong supply, hints of jazz and an altogether colourful and easy-going mood – the release quickly invites interest in the GO MERUS catalogue.
Daring to suggest, perhaps, but you’d be forgiven for believing, should you not be familiar with popular music from previous eras, that Ferris Durden’s Dancing In The Dark was a timeless pop-rock original.
Visually simple, home-made and authentic in being so, yet utterly complex and powerful when it comes to the sound and delivery – BehindTheHorror lives out this ode to Nightwish with absolute passion and precision.
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.
