Darwin Deez, the man and the band, started making waves in the UK in late 2009 and embarked on a world tour this year. During an interview on Australia’s Triple J radio, Deez described his music as “alternative, homemade indie pop.” He then launched into a bit praising the perks of his first tour, many of which are a little too spicy for a family publication like Cover Me (so listen here).

The group originally planned to cover “Stronger” by Kanye West, but scrapped it (a bummer, since it’s always interesting to see how artists interpret Mr. West’s songs). Deez offered no reason for the change, choosing “Scar Tissue” as the replacement simply because he’s “in a Red Hot Chili Peppers phase.” The band’s cover was faithful to the original other than a lyrical change to reference the Anthony Kiedis-Dave Navarro kiss in the Peppers’ “Warped” video.
