Tears for Fears - "My Girls" (Animal Collective cover)

Tears for Fears My Girl

Here's your second piece of Tears for Fears cover news of the day - adding to the list of contemporary indie singles they've covered as "warmups" for the production of their first LP in ten years (which includes Hot Chip and Arcade Fire songs), here's the band's latest piece of what they've termed "reciprocal cross-generational love," a cover of Animal Collective's "My Girls." It's lovely - Tears for Fears more than do justice to Animal Collective's percussive, maximalist groove, but amp up the new wave feel with a few extra bubbly synth loops. Check it out.
