Brooklyn via Australia dreampop duo High Highs has been touring with the likes of Vampire Weekend, Sky Ferreira, and has just announced a new string of shows with Stars. While on said tours, the band (backed by a full live band) has been performing their take on College‘s “A Real Hero.” The duo just released a studio version of the song we all know and love so dearly from the film Drive.
Every so often, a cover comes along that brings a song either back into the spotlight or further into it. To anyone who loves the movie Drive, “A Real Hero” by College and Electric Youth is immediately recognizable. That being said, it’s most recognized as “the song from Drive” even by that particular audience.
