Brand New-“Me vs Maradona vs Elvis” (my cover)
Brand New has always been one of my favorite bands. One of the poignant things about their music is that they aren’t afraid to explore the damaged, broken side of the human psyche. This is the darkest song I’ve ever covered (I do lead vox, play all guitar parts and play drums here), but it explores the idea of loneliness and desperation. It explores how depraved of real love we can get, making us only wanting to use someone to fulfill some massive hole in our emotional makeup.
