My, how the times have changed. Social media has changed life. Whether for the better or not is highly contested. We live in a world where you can become “internet famous”.
Perhaps this is why we’ve not heard of Luke Holland. He’s a “famous” YouTube drummer. He’s got the lineage, though. His dad is a pro drummer. Cool. But we’re uncool cuz we didn’t know who he was.
Well, now we do. He offers his stick abilities for a cover of “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by The Evening.
We’re not usually fans of covers/remakes, because they tend to suck. Yes, that’s the official term.
Tears for Fears made the song a hit in the 80s. What we like about the original is its gritty, yet dream-like nature. The Evening, consisting of producer/instrumentalist Taylor Larson and vocalist Kinnie Lane, wanted to brighten-up the track.
Fortunately, the track is still gritty where it needs to be. The vocals are, indeed, sunny. But slightly annoying, too. We still give this track a thumbs up, because after a glass or two of wine—it’s going to sound just fine. Just like our singing in the shower.
