As we reported last month, the Futureheads are gearing up to release a completely a cappella album, Rant, featuring new takes on classic folk songs and tracks from their discography. Oh, and they have also taken on tunes by Kelis and Black Eyed Peas because, why not, right?
We’re hearing the latter today in “Meet Me Halfway,” which fans of the BEPs heard on their 2010 album, The E.N.D. For everyone else, this comes across as nothing more than an earnest, albeit slightly tongue-in-cheek, attempt at ’80s power-pop. Sort of.
