"Pale Shelter" by Matthew Dear ft. Tegan & Sara // Originally by Tears for Fears
Lately, Tears for Fears have been covering a handful of fresh, modern tracks from bands like Arcade Fire, Animal Collective, and Hot Chip. Matthew Dear has returned the favor, with a little help from Tegan and Sara, covering the classic Tears for Fears track, “Pale Shelter”. The brooding, new wave original has been flipped and chopped and reassembled into a shimmering, electro pop jam with a bit of a dark side. With Tegan and Sara taking the vocals, the and Dear’s spiky, vibrant production, I can’t imagine this version not being a hit fans of the old as well as first time listeners. Pretty great stuff.
