3TEETH's Cover Of "Pumped Up Kicks" Is A Slowed Down Industrial Crusher
3TEETH will release their new album Metawar on July 5 and they're giving everyone one more single, though it's a song you might've already heard. The band has done a slower, almost dreamily creepy cover of Foster The People's 2010 hit "Pumped Up Kicks", which frontman Alexis Mincolla says is very in line with what industrial bands have done in the past.
“Industrial bands have a long history of subverting popular culture songs. From songs like Revolting Cocks’ version ‘Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?’ or Laibach’s ‘Sympathy for the Devil“. We’ve just always been a fan of this sort of thing and felt it would be a good time to take an iconic song of the late 2000’s and give it some unexpected 2019 industrial darkness, which in the end seemed all too fitting considering the song is about a school shooter.”
