“ ‘Don’t Fear The Reaper’ has always been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. I remember singing this song at the top of lungs with my mom.

Gwen Stefani’s Cool gets a synth cover by Strath

STRATH COVERS GWEN STEFANI’S COOL

Most use the California poppies for pretty instagrams.

Fewer use them to film music videos.

Strath falls into the latter.

The 24-year-old Australian artist took full advantage of the super bloom in his debut music video for his latest release “Cool”. The track is a cover of the 2004 Gwen Stefani smash hit. 15 years later, Strath adds new color to the track’s pop virtues, letting his listeners stew in a sea of sweeping 80s synthesizers that smell a lot like Tame Impala.

A real highlight is the brief musical interlude in the song’s middle, where a new guitar/synth melody soars over the tight groove of spank-y drums and walking bass line. A credit to his talents as a producer, the way Strath balances many unique elements in the mix ensure that this track is a real head-bopper.

The nostalgic, slightly haunting feel of the song’s outro leaves it feeling more sombre than the original. But the playful tone of the music video — where Strath sings next to a couple that must have been making out for several hours during production — perhaps suggests otherwise.

Strath affirms in the YouTube video’s description that the video was shot with “care” in the poppy fields. Whilst we hope that was the case, we can confirm with confidence that this track is a real banger.

ABOUT STRATH

Strath spent his first 18 years in Melbourne, Australia, writing songs during the day while playing in different jazz and rock bands at night. He moved halfway across the world to go to Harvard, where he spent the next 4 years making movies and even more tracks. After graduation, he relocated to LA, where he’s released a number of singles including “Loops,” “I Know You Too Well” and a cover of the 2004 Gwen Stefani smash hit, “Cool.” He plans on releasing lots of new music in 2019.

“As a songwriter I’ve always admired Bob Dylan’s ability to write songs that become timeless classics,” says CLOVES.  “It was an absolute honor for me to cover this song.  Bob Dylan is a true icon.” 

CLOVES released her acclaimed debut album One Big Nothing in the fall of 2018 on Interscope Records. With One Big Nothing, CLOVES demonstrates a musical assurance and maturity beyond her years; an impressive progression from her acclaimed 2015 EP XIII. Fans and critics alike have taken notice – KCRW called her music “moody and haunting,” while Harper’s BAZAAR raved, “get ready to fall in love,” and Twitter Musicdeclared, “if you’re a fan of Radio Head or DJ Shadow…add her to your playlists.”  CLOVES spent most of 2018 in America gracing the stages of major U.S. music festivals including Panorama and XPoNential and supporting Greta Van Fleet on their sold-out U.S. tour.  She also appeared at international festivals including London’s All Points East Festival, Norway’s Bergenfest PinkPop and Electric Picnic in Ireland and in October embarked on a European headlining tour with stops in the UK, France, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.

5 Seconds Of Summer Honor Queen With Cover Of “Killer Queen”

In honor of the life and legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen, and in celebration of the upcoming biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, multi-platinum band 5 Seconds Of Summer release a cover of Queen’s 1974 seminal hit, “Killer Queen” today at all digital providers.  Stream/Download “Killer Queen” HERE.

Says 5SOS, “Queen have been such a massive influence on us as a band.  Their unique harmonies, the fluidity to their songwriting and how they each used their own musicality to back each other up have always inspired us.  We chose to cover, ‘Killer Queen’ because we kept hearing it while writing our third album, Youngblood and were so enamored by the production and their early realization of the minimalist approach to the track.  For us, the exploration of individual vocalists in a band is incredibly important and Queen helped us to see the future of how we want to sing, in addition to how we play our instruments.  As a pioneer of individuality, Freddie taught us what it means to embrace the idea of truly being yourself and that’s a part of Queen that lives on in their music now, more than ever.”

The song, produced by Linus, follows singer-songwriter and musician, Shawn Mendes’ acoustic interpretation of the iconic 1981 No. 1 hit, “Under Pressure” and was recorded as the second installment in a series of three artist covers in support of the Mercury Phoenix Trust (MPT).  The MPT was founded in 1992 by Brian MayRoger Taylor and Jim Beach to support the global fight against HIV/AIDS. 5SOS, together with Universal Music Group (UMG) and Queen, will donate net profits of the track to the MPT.

“Everyone at the Mercury Phoenix Trust is thrilled that 5 Seconds of Summer have joined our global campaign fighting AIDS in celebration of the movie Bohemian Rhapsody. Thank you 5SOS for giving us such an impeccable version of Freddie’s classic Killer Queen,” said Queen’s manager, Jim Beach.
