NEW TRACK: Skymarines - "There is a Light That Never Goes Out" (The Smiths Cover)

I'm still coming to terms with the fact that The Smith’s “There is a Light That Never Goes Out” will be covered over and over again over the course of the average lifetime. This fresh and vibrant cover from Davao-based electropop act Skymarines, however, has made such a fate more bearable (at the very least) for the simple reason that it is one of those few which feature soft, dreamy female vocals and a lovely backing that complements it well.

As you get wrapped in its produced beats, you also get stuck with a warm, fuzzy feeling that almost makes you want to skip through cotton candy-lined streets until you finally snap back into the song's lyrics which speak about destruction. Along with the realization that there's nothing peppy about being road-pizzaed by a bus, you'd also think that Skymarines and The Smiths are on rather dissimilar sides of the spectrum. The overlapping, heart-on-sleeve ride was incredibly teasing and romantic, though, that you wouldn't mind being taken again for another spin. via Klaris Chua
