The Submarines duo Blake Hazard and John Dragonetti share the typical relationship story: meet, fall in love, break up, get back together, form an indie electro pop band, and get married. Or at least, a typical relationship except for the band part. Originating from Los Angeles, they first achieved critical success in 2006 with their album Declare a New State!: a chronicle of the couple’s separation before reconciliation. They are quickly gaining popularity thanks to a showcase of their songs on iPhone commercials, prime time television, and movies.

To know The Submarines history makes listening to their duet of The Jesus and Mary Chain’s “Just Like Honey” all the more sweet. Creating more upbeat electronic noise rather than Chain’s shoegaze guitar sound, the couple give “Just Like Honey” a subtle, refreshing makeover. When Hazard and Dragonetti sing “walking back to you is the hardest thing that I can do,” we’re just relieved all that hard work paid off for them. Check out the lovebirds below.
