Watch Cults Tackle Leonard Cohen’s “Everybody Knows”

    Venerable singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen just put out a quite good new record, modestly titled Old Ideas. As a companion piece to that, Old Ideas With New Friends will be a gradually-released album of cover pieces by modern artists. Here, Cults take on “Everybody Knows” and kind of kill it. It’s actually pretty badass to see the band taking on heavier material that’s dramatic enough to stretch their dynamic range. They certainly rise to the task of tackling their source material, and the result is something that bodes well for the band’s future releases. Hopefully they harness this intensity for their own tracks. Check out the video of their performance below. [BPM]
