Seattle’s Crater were one of our favorite discoveries from last year mixing brooding ’90s atmospherics and electronics in a similar fashion to a Depeche Mode or even a modern day reinterpretation of the band Garbage with their chameleon-like musical tendencies. While they released several great one-off singles in 2014, their full potential was fully realized in their gorgeous track “Ain’t Right”. The song had us major jonesing for a proper album from the ladies.
While we still don’t have new album to dial up on, the duo have given us an absolute monster cover of The Stone Roses “Shoot You Down” from the English band’sclassic 1989 self-titled debut album. Crater’s version fills out some of the sparseness of the original with illuminating and droning synths making the song completely their own. We haven’t stopped playing the song since it appeared in our inbox last week and we are pretty certain you will have this on repeat as well. You can listen to the track below via Soundcloud or the video that was, according to the band, “compiled from creative commons footage off Vimeo and the depths of the internet that felt appropriate and also a bit eerie.”
