Watch The Horrors Cover David Bowie's "Suffragette City"

After releasing their new album Skying this year and announcing a few rescheduled tour dates, English post-punk band The Horrors are now dipping their feet into the realm of cover songs.

More specifically, the five-piece honored legendary singer David Bowie by covering his classic song “Suffragette City” for Channel 4’s program On Track with SEAT. The recording, which was completed in one take at London’s Metropolis Studios, is remarkably faithful to Bowie’s original version and channels all its raucous grit and energy, although lead singer Faris Badwan’s delivery differs in tone and quality from Bowie’s vocals.

You can download The Horrors’ rendition of “Suffragette City” at On Track’s Facebook page, or watch the video of the one-take recording below:
