Belgian pop daydreamers SUN GODS celebrate the 30th birthday of THE CURE‘s darksome masterwork DISINTEGRATION with an interpretation of their own of PICTURES OF YOU, the best track on that much-lauded longplayer and to Turn Up The Volmume‘s ears the Goth stars’ most magnetic pièce de résistance.
Considering the song’s classic status SUN GODS‘s choice to cover it, is both daring and bold. It’s the passionate vox of frontman Brent Buckler that colors this beauty differently from the original score. Suddenly it feels like there is still hope for a better future after
‘Pictures Of You‘ instead of a never-ending grief as reflected in the doom-loaded impact
of Robert Smith‘s performance. One outstanding song, two different, affecting renditions.
