New Music: Popstrangers – With a Girl Like You Mix (The Troggs Cover)
The Popstrangers released their debut record, Antipodes, on Carpark Records last month and it’s a great album. The New Zealand three piece can volley easily between luscious indie guitar driven pop and a more sludgy punk driven ethos. The below cover of The Troggs “With a Girl Like You” is a favorite of mine – and their version stays respectfully true to the original. The song was done in memory of Reg Presley, the lead singer of the Troggs who passed away in February from Cancer, and the respect shown by The Popstrangers in not only doing the cover, but how they did it, give me hope for the future, which is nothing without the past.
