If circa-2012 indie rock bands are never gonna survive unless they get a little crazy. Or in any case, maybe that’s why London churners 2:54, one of Stereogum’s 40 best new bands of 2012, have covered “Killer,” the 1990 single with acid house producer Adamski that first put Seal on the map. Or maybe they’re trying to get attention from supermodels. Or maybe, just maybe, they’ve covered the song because it’s great and it fits nicely with their chilly brood. In any case, you should really listen to the 2:54 cover below.
2:54’s self-titled debut album is out now on Fat Possum.
