Cover: Torches - Close-Ups (Crushed Beaks)
London two piece Crushed Beaks were named in our 'Ones To Watch for 2012' list for good reason. A big part of that was down to their intense breakthrough track "Close-Ups", which was duly included in our Certified New mix for November.
Yesterday, being mates and all, Fellow London outfit Torches unveiled their own version of "Close-Ups", and a worthy one at that. Out are the high octane guitars (for the most part anyway) and in their place is a wave of bleak, atmospheric space and long, stinging electronics. A style that Torches have seemingly captured so well in their brief yet promising career.
Expect a role reverse in the near future. Hear the track below.
