CHVRCHES – Bela Lugosi’s Dead (Cloud, MP3)
I can get down with Joy Division, but that’s usually about as far as I go when it comes to the early 80’s goth-new wave scene. Bauhaus was a little bit gnarly for my taste, but “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” is one of their few tracks I am familiar with. CHVRCHES have served up a cover that, to me, supersedes the original. This version fits perfect with where it will land. On a soundtrack for a movie about vampires. Perfection.
