For better or worse, I still relate to art echoing emotions felt in my youth.
Today I learned the Girlpool‘s Cut Your Bangs is a cover (hat-tip genius.com community) of a Radiator Hospital twee pop track. For months, I still cannot get that track out of my head, notably the chorus refrain.
Girlpool slows it all down and pointedly highlights via dynamics and vocal harmonies this:
When you lie to me
it’s in the small stuff
Get’s me in the feels every time … not that there aren’t other barbs present in the original’s (lovely) up-tempo scat. Props to Girlpool for upgrading emotional impact of a 2 minute song.
Apologies for crappy formatting and such.
