Today brings the gift of music…a freshly released cover by the Beliefs of Sound of Thunder!
Like Moby’s Rio, this single can be found on Making Patterns Rhyme – the Duran Duran tribute (cover) album that has been produced by Manimal Records.
This cover is in the style of “Shoegaze” and if you’re not really familiar with that sound – I would suggest possibly listening to old Tears for Fears, like anything off of The Hurting, for instance. This has a little heavier guitar (with a lot of reverb going on), and the vocals are pretty existential, which completely changes the vibe of the song. For me, Sound of Thunder was a song that described sitting back and watching the world go by, as though not being an active participant for whatever reason. The slightly disjointed, disconnected lyrics hovering just over the top of the guitar really bring that concept home. For me, this version hits a home run; but I’m really more curious about what you might think – so take a listen and send me a line!
The song is available as of tomorrow 6/10 on iTunes, proceeds go to Amnesty International.
