The last time we heard from POP ETC, the former Morning Benders, it was two years ago, and they were covering Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know.” It’s been a while since I’ve even thought about them. And yet here they are, covering the Gin Blossoms’ 1996 alt-rock radio hit “Follow You Down,” the sort of song that you could really imagine the cast of Friends getting down to back in the day. POP ETC’s version is soft and intimate and home-recorded and still very faithful to the original. Listen below.
Is the world ready for a Gin Blossoms reappraisal? Is that a thing that’s happening?
