Arcade Fire covers have abounded since the release of The Suburbs in 2010. A few months ago we put together a tribute with some of the best Suburbs covers, but more keep cropping up. The latest comes from Arcade Fire’s fellow Canadians Cuff the Duke, who take on the album’s title track, following up on their recent Dum Dum Girls cover.
Dum Dum Girls is known for its California garage pop sound. Cuff the Duke is known for its folk and alt-country influences. The latter band recently covered the sultry lead track from the Dum Dum Girls’ new Only in Dreams and the result is stunning.
