Listen: 2:54 – Killer (Adamski and Seal)

September 12, 2012 by  

2:54 have covered a song that soundtracked most of our youth – Adamski and Seal’s ’90s hit ‘Killer’.

One half of 2:54, Colette, said of the cover: “There’s a nostalgia to ‘Killer’ that each member of the band identifies with. We grew up listening to Seal. ‘Kiss from a Rose’ and ‘Crazy’ are such big songs.”

We thought it would be interesting to re-work a pop song and put a 2:54 spin on it. The lyrics are really moving too; melancholic and tough. To me it feels like a song about hope and solidarity.”

2:54 are currently on tour with The xx and will be embarking on their own UK headline tour in October and November, and you can listen to their version of ‘Killler’ below:
