Catbite is a rockin’ four-piece ska band from Philadelphia whose influences include The Selectors, The Specials, Elvis Costello, and many more. In their new cover, they tackle one of the recent pop-rock hitmakers Neon Trees’ most popular tunes, “Everybody Talks.”
While the original high-charting power pop song is gleeful, this version is more forward in showcasing how sinister sweet-talking) can be. This cover almost gives us 60’s vibes with all of its lush vocal oo’s and ah’s layered in the background. The driving talking guitars on the offbeats and bright yet boisterous drums make this version likable at first blush.
But as the tune continues, it gets grittier and grittier. What once was an upbeat pop song turned into a dirty tune full of yell-singing, a crepe-cake of guitars, and even a touch of organ. It adds up to something sassy, energetic, and dance-worthy. Check it out below.
