Crushed Beaks / Torches Split Single.

London bands Crushed Beaks and Torches have announced the release of a split download single featuring cover versions of each others songs. Torches’ version of Crushed Beaks’ Close-Ups is the first to be released, with Crushed Beaks’ version of Torches’ VTOO appearing online very soon.

However, appearing first with their lurching cover, Torches reweld the original’s upbeat urgency into something far more dark, brooding and synonymous with their own sound. Echoed accapellas prove to be the calm before an industrial storm of wrenched guitars, pounding drums and mesmerising drones of synthesisers twist the song’s once upbeat atmosphere into a wonderfully terrifying frenzy.
