Gengahr – I’m So Tired (Fugazi Cover)

Track of the Day comes from last week’s Album of the Week title-holders in the form of London band Gengahr and their expertly chosen and perfectly executed cover of Fugazi’s ‘I’m So Tired’. It’s effortlessly cool and a touchingly honest and adoring cover.

Recorded and mixed in just a day at Urchin Studios, replacing the solo piano set up seen in the original with a full band arrangement, the band metre out the track to perfection keeping sullen and sombre in delicious lumps of Fugazi-goodness.

The track crescendos with a fantastic solo from Victor and cements Gengahr’s name as firnmly ones to keep your eyes on as they look set to turn the festival circuit on fire. Here’s what lead singer Felix Busghe had to say about the track:

“Fugazi was a group that really influenced us early on when we started playing in bands. The song is a real favourite of ours and a bit of a hidden gem. There’s very little instrumentation on the original so we had a lot of freedom to elaborate.”
