Is there an unwritten rule that all of the best dream pop has to come from Baltimore, Maryland? With Beach House, Future Islands, and Lower Dens all hailing from the birthplace of the Star Spangled Banner, it seems like it is. Lower Islands, whose latest release Escape From Evil is making every indie critic swoon, celebrated their recent success with this cover of Hall & Oates “Maneater.”

Jana Hunter & co. may have a lot of synthy sounds in their original work, but here we really get to see it shine in a lighthearted manner. The tempo is dialed down and plays perfectly with Hunter’s signature haunting vocals.

Check out more Lower Dens on the band’s official website.
