Darkstar "Temporary Secretary" (ft. Hayden Thorpe) (Paul McCartney cover)
Published Apr 02, 2015Back in 1980, Paul McCartney was very early on the electro scene with his album McCartney II and the experimental song "Temporary Secretary." Now, Darkstar have covered this classic curio along with Wild Beasts singer Hayden Thorpe.
This cover maintains the electronic palette of McCartney's original, with rippling synths and twitchy drum machines providing the backdrop for playful for melodies. The synths are a little more lush and expansive here than on the original, but the electro-pop experimentation is similarly peculiar.
