Published Nov 10, 2015FIDLAR and Bully are both known for their fuzzy, rocking sounds, but as they tour Europe together this month, the bands are exploring quieter territory with a collaborative cover of the Magnetic Fields' "Absolutely Cuckoo."
This wry indie pop tune from 69 Love Songs serves as a playful warning for potential suitors, and FIDLAR and Bully make the arrangement a little more snazzy and complex by shifting between near-a cappella minimalism, spacey synths, Afrobeat-tinged rhytms and smooth electric guitar. Despite the altered arrangement, however, this rendition is fairly faithful to the original tune.
The song is accompanied by a curious set of visuals in which human mouths are projected onto still images of dogs. The European tour dates are included in the final moments or see them all here. Check it out below.
