The Districts, Philadelphia’s own indie quartet is taking on one of the greatest classics from the 80’s – “Love Will Tear Us Apart”. Though covered by many over the years in a bid to pay the highest tribute, so many fall short in personalizing the darkwave single, instead covering perfectly lest it be insulted. The Districts, however, bring a certain articulation to Joy Division’s greatest hit, reminding us that they were just a skipping stone’s throw from a US tour once upon a time.
Following their 2017 record, Popular Manipulations, the band are set to tour the UK and Europe, with a stop at Napa’s BottleRock Festival at the end of May. Listen below.
