The Suzan - "Paranoid" (Kanye West cover)
By Josiah HughesJapanese girl-pop export the Suzan are gearing up to drop their Fool's Gold debut Golden Week for the Poco Poco Beat on October 25. Prior to the album's release, the group have revealed a cover of Kanye West's 808s and Heartbreak single “Paranoid,” and it's seriously addictive.

The track's minimal bass line and stripped-down aesthetic, paired with the girls' rhythmic vocal delivery, comes across like M.I.A. covering the XX. In other words, it's completely fantastic and has us digging into the Suzan's original material. Maybe we're a little Kanye'd out right now, but it's safe to say that in many ways this is an improvement of the source material.
