Published Mar 25, 2015Tropical pop Vancouverites BESTiE have a hometown show coming up this Saturday (March 28) with local peers Humans, and the two bands are celebrating by releasing a cover of "Eyes of a Stranger" by classic Vancity act the Payolas.
The song is steeped in '80s drama, as watery guitars and pounding mid-tempo beats set the foundation for singer Tristan Orchard's emphatic vocal delivery. Some horn-like tones enter during the instrumental break before the song swells to a climactic final chorus.
This track previously won LG73's vanCOVER contest. Hear it below.
BESTiE and Humans will perform at Celebrities as a hometown release show for the latter's new album Noontide. Dralms are also on the bill. Get details about the event over on Facebook.
