Death Rattle cover Fleetwood Mac‏

June 24, 2012

Electronic doom pop duo Death Rattle have made their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘The Chain’ available to stream via soundcloud:

After playing The Chain live at a number of recent shows, the duo were asked to provide an extended version of the track for the Mr. Start catwalk show on June 16th, as part of London’s first ever mens fashion week; London Collections Men. After an overwhelming response from the international press in attendance, the duo decided to make The Chain available online. Editors from UK publications Esquire and Grazia were among the fans of Death Rattle’s version of the song and after the band was inundated with further requests for the track, it was decided to make a preview of it available to stream online indefinitely before its official release on the band’s debut EP later in the year.

Mr Start have featured the track in their video footage of the show here:

The cover version follows two original singles from the band – ‘The Dig‘ (Nov 2011) and ‘Do As You Please‘ (May 2012) – with both songs and their accompanying videos receiving praise from music bloggers worldwide:-

“Influences are comparable to some of the best in show; we’re talking Lykke Li meets Fever Ray” (Killing Moon)

“The hook is incredible, burrowing itself deep into your conscious with every tangible, unfaltering shovel fall. An amazing debut song” (Music Dissection)

“The pounding synth menace could be Depeche Mode, the throbbing rhythm and harsh metallic beat is much akin to NIN” (Midnite Vulture)

The band have confirmed the following upcoming festivals over summer 2012:

Swanfest (Ipswich UK) – 30th June
Brainchild (Reading UK) – 1st July
Via Ventosa (Eindhoven, NL) – 8th July
Tramlines (Sheffield, UK) – 20th July
