They do a grizzled cover of La Roux’s ‘In For The Kill’ included on a mix tape they’re putting out. Yes you heard correct, a freakin rewind, fast forward, pull the tape out, stick a pencil in tape cassette, and if you catch them on their current UK tour these are being handed out all decorated and collectible like. Along with a clip of their super sleazy track ‘Hung Up’, there’s some banging tunes and a Will Smith, big willy style cameo on it. I’d recommend joy riding the nearest escort, driving down a country lane and banging this out.
If you don’t know what a tape actually is or just want to hear this now it’s been uploaded to their blog, so although this feels like cheating it’s posted here for you to download.
