Taken from the Spleen+/Alfa Matrix The Cure tribute compilation “A Strange Play vol.2”, “Lovesong” is one of the most played and liked songs from this collection of THE CURE cover songs.
The Belgian gang THE ULTIMATE DREAMERS nicely appropriated this cult pop song by slowing its tempo, adding TR808 drums and their characteristic load of reverb, reenforcing the darkish atmosphere of this beautiful song. No surprise that the band members now call it “Lovedark”?!
A nice way to enter the unique melancholic cold wave universe of this rising Belgian band and embrace their echoing reverie, nicely rendered by the complementary video clip also released for the occasion…
