Published May 06, 2015Montreal outfit Heat recently re-released their Rooms EP, and to mark the occasion, they've traded in their signature guitar-based rock'n'roll sound for something a little more poppy — in fact, something from the Queen of Pop herself. The band have covered Madonna's "Dress You Up."
Taking the glimmering synth-pop of the original and putting a shoegaze-y spin on it, Heat's version of the '80s hit definitely has a gloomier feel to it. The synths still shimmer, but guitars and drums give it some extra edge, while the sneering baritone vocals add another dash of darkness.

Though the redo doesn't appear on the EP, Rooms is out now via Kitsuné, and you can see all the band's upcoming tour dates here.
