Published Jul 22, 2014There's been a bite of spate of bands covering Bruce Springsteen's "I'm on Fire" in recent years, and the latest act to take on the classic tune are slowcore survivors Low.
This version emphasizes the song's simmering intensity with its distorted guitar plucking. That being said, Low don't lose the original's dreamy sweetness either, since this cover sports reverb-swathed vocal harmonies.
This comes from the Born in the U.S.A. tribute album Dead Man's Town, due out on September 16 through Lightning Rod Records. Other contributors include Blitzen Trapper, Justin Townes Earle, Nicole Atkins, Jason Isbell, Trampled by Turtles and more.
