Strand of Oaks covers The National's "Pink Rabbits"

Strand Of Oaks

Since its release earlier this year, we haven't been able to put down Tim Showalter a.k.a. Strand of Oaks’ tremendous LP, HEAL. While the album is largely an indie rock record with a deep love and respect of country music, Showalter is also prone to 80's synth flourishes that are, as we noted in our review, worthy of M83. Showalter takes up his woozy brand of synth pop and applies it to this cover of The National’s "Pink Rabbits", perhaps the most enduring (and devastating) track from the band's 2013 album Trouble Will Find Me.
