Tape Waves #4 - Age of Consent (New Order Cover)

Facebook / tapewaves.tumblr.com

Tapes Waves are a band I now have a working affinity with as well as a musical one after Beautiful Strange released their brilliant debut EP on cassette tape back in September (hint: there aren't too many left).

The Charleston duo return with a cover of New Order's "Age of Consent". A version that retains the hypnotic guitar riff that forms the heart-piece of the track but strips much of the pace and aggression from the track, instead Tape Waves have come up with something all the more beautiful with Kim Hart's softenings vocal coo's soon covering you in a warm, hazy after-glow. Just gorgeous.
