Perfect Pussy – “Leash Called Love” (Sugarcubes Cover)

Before she went solo, Björk fronted the euphoric Icelandic dreampop band the Sugarcubes. And given that Björk is one of the toughest-to-imitate singers on the face of the earth, it takes a whole lot of courage to even attempt a Sugarcubes cover, let alone to make it your own. So the fact that Syracuse punks Perfect Pussy took on the Sugarcubes’ 1992 song “Leash Called Love” and effortlessly translated its joyous whoosh to their scraping DIY basement hardcore is a pretty remarkable thing. Perfect Pussy’s cover of the song will appear, alongside a new PP song called “Adult World (The Secret),” on a new split 7″ with Joanna Gruesome. For their part, Joanna Gruesome cover I Hate Myself’s “…Keep Reaching For Those Stars” and offer a new song, a kickass straightforward punk rocker called “Psykick Espionage.” Below, listen to Perfect Pussy’s “Leash Called Love” cover, as well as “Psykick Espionage.”
