Last year Beach Fossils shared their latest album ‘Somersault’, which we said was “proof that sometimes sharing your vision can pay off spectacularly”.
Now, a little more than six months down the line, they’ve resurfaced to share their own cover ‘Agony’, a track from Swedish rapper Yung Lean’s album ‘Stranger’ from last year. Stripping the original of its piano backbone, the Brooklynites have given it their own dream-pop haze, adding in vintage, woozy synths and guitars. Their own downbeat vibes work perfectly for the tune, giving it a new sound while still retaining Yung Lean’s melancholy.
Listen to Beach Fossils’ version of ‘Agony’ below.
