Song of the Moment

“Shadowplay” by Velvet Kills

I always listen to Joy Division when it’s cold out. With the sudden climate change in Cincinnati from 75 degree to 30 degrees in the span of about 12 hours, I was definitely in need of some cold weather music. Velvet Kills, the sleek electropunk darkwave band, does a really badass version of Joy Division’s “Shadowplay.” The European two piece on Θʀ⊿cu⌊⊕ ʀ⋵cøʀɖs adds a sexy spin to the post punk classic. Velvet Kills are put together in such an elegant manner that everything they do exudes style. The video that accompanies their cover is definitely worth watching.
