"Sleeper" is one of Ty Segall's mellower songs - recorded without his usual band of party-starters, and written about his father's passing, it's a dark, beautiful slow-burner. So, in a weird way, it makes a roundabout kind of sense that the Brighton, UK band Fear of Men would cover it to get psyched up for their upcoming massive European tour. Frontwoman Jess Weiss's vocals are perfectly suited to take on Segall's psychedelic, morose lyrics; meanwhile her band expertly craft a layered backdrop of interwoven guitars. It's a great listen - check it out.
Listen to an unlikely but beautiful cover.
