BEST NEW TRACKS: AVEC SANS "WILL DO (TV ON THE RADIO COVER)"

5/19/14

After six months of radio (foreshadowing!) silence, London electronic duo Avec Sans are back with another top new song, this time covering TV On The Radio’s “Will Do.”

The original “Will Do” is a slow-building, occasionally plodding number that’s somewhere between alternative and post-rock. But in the hands of Alice Fox and Jack St. James it becomes a catchy indie dance cut. I’m kinda shocked more bands don’t cover TV On The Radio, since the bulk of their songs have a pop core. Avec Sans does a marvelous job exhuming it here, and I’d guess this cover of “Will Do” will stay stuck in your head at least through the weekend. Hear it below:

Here’s the less sexy, but nonetheless infectious original.
