Many of you regular readers know that I am a big fan of the Dead Zoo, they are a band with a very bright future. They have a new single “In The End” lined up for release on 26th March, I reckon it will be their best yet from what the band have told me. But in the meantime they took the rather strange, but rather wonderful decision to release the B-Side early. It was released on January 10th, the fifth anniversary of the passing of David Bowie. It is a cover of one of my favourite later period Bowie songs, “Everyone Says Hi” from 2002’s ‘Heathen’. It is a faithful take on the tune but singer Kaoru adds a hauntingly beautiful and respectful vocal to it. Their is an undercurrent of emotion in her voice, maybe she is channelling her inner Bowie, I know she is a huge fan of the Dame. I also love the sublime vamping backing vocals too. It was a brave cover to attempt, but the Dead Zoo nailed it! I am looking forward even more to the A side now 🙂 keep your ears peeled for it good people! If you love this track like I do, I also urge you to check out Kaoru’s fabulous covers album released last year on BandCamp, click here to find it.
