More Record Store Day extravaganza. New York outfit and PMA favored Freelance Whales are putting out a split 7” with tourmates Foals that consists of two covers: the U.K. electro rock band' rendition of Swedish House Mafia's club smash “One” and the Whales take on the 1980 new wave sensation “Girl U Want” by Devo.
True to the essence of covers, Freelance Whales completely alter the 80s pop hit, making into a lovely, slow and ethereal ballad, brimming with acoustic strings which gives it a bit of a country feel, backed with high and low pitched synths. Frontman Judah Dedone's sweet, tantalizing vocals are essentially the antonym of the eccentric glam rock stylings of Mark Mothersbaugh. Get it when RSD rolls around, April 16th.
