Best Covers: Sugar for Sugar “Bizarre Love Triangle”

October 7th brings the release of The Time Is Now, a new charity covers compilation benefitting amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research. Due out from Republic Records/Mass Appeal Records, the album features updates of classic ’80s jams from the likes of Phantogram (Phil Collins’ “Take Me Home”), Lower Dens (Hall & Oates’ “Maneater”), and Aloe Blacc (Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean). It also includes a cover of New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle” by Scarlett Johansson’s band Sugar for Sugar.

Sugar for Sugar is essentially Johansson’s previous short-lived supergroup, The Singles, minus Este Haim — it features Holly Miranda, Julia Haltigan, and Kendra Morris. Together, they keep things relatively faithful to New Order’s new wave hit, adding a touch more neon to the synth notes and percussion.
