Way back in 1985, seminal noise-pop outfit the Jesus and Mary Chain began making waves with “Never Understand.” It was the first single from the Scottish band’s debut, Psychocandy, and would of course find its way lodged into our brains.

I mean, did we really expect monotone singing from sugary sweet Asobi Seksu frontwoman Yuki Chikudate? Stream the cover below. For reference, the original can be found on YouTube. [A Heart Is A Spade]
