Best Covers: Fousheé ‘Enjoy The Silence’

Recorded for H&M’s new summer campaign, Find The Strength In Silence, genre-blurring artist Fousheé has shared a cover of Depeche Mode’s ‘enjoy the silence’!

Alongside the cover, she’s also confirmed that her debut project ‘Time Machine’ will be arriving on 4th June, describing it as “a time travel through memories, thoughts, emotions, experiences and what she sees for the prospective future”.

4Ever Songs: Depeche Mode ‘Enjoy The Silence’

In 1990 Depeche Mode released Violator, the album that definitively consecrated them to international success. The record contained some of the group’s most celebrated songs, such as World In My EyesPolicy Of TruthPersonal Jesus and Enjoy The Silence.

The latter was used as the second single of the album and the clip was given to Dutch director Anton Corbijn, who immediately proposed his vision on how to transport Enjoy The Silence on video. The idea was to film Dave Gahan dressed as a Little Prince, with crown and cloak, as he passes through desolate landscapes, dragging a deckchair behind him.

Introducing…Nation of Language

The Brooklyn-based trio has made a very ’80s splash on their debut album “Introduction, Presence,” with many songs not out of place if they were on “The Breakfast Club” soundtrack. And yet it also sounds utterly fresh.

There are clear echoes on the excellent 10-track collection of New Wave icons like New Order, Depeche Mode, Erasure, The The, Yazoo and Pet Shop Boys, but also more than a hint of The National.

Nation of Language is made up of vocalist Ian Devaney, his keyboardist-wife Aidan Devaney and bassist Michael Sui-Poi. They combine to create spare song architectures and smartly avoid the silly flourishes that made some ’80s-era music dated.

Le Classique: Depeche Mode

The British trio of Dave Gahan, Martin Gore and Andy Fletcher, a classic of synth pop since their debut in the early 1980s, are in Barcelona with their The Global Spirit Tour, in support of their 14th album, ‘Spirit’ (2017), which follows 2013’s, ‘Delta Machine’. If you missed the a few years ago, now’s your chance to see what all your friends were raving about, and hopefully dance around like mad to Depeche Mode favourites like ‘Enjoy the Silence’, ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ and ‘Personal Jesus’. There’s a reason they’ve sold more than 100 million albums throughout their illustrious career. Tonight at Palau Sant Jordi.

Bilbao BBk Live 2017

El Bilbao BBK Live celebra desde hoy hasta el sábado su duodécima edición: tres días de más de 100 horas de música a cargo de más de 70 bandas repartidas a lo largo de cinco escenarios en una balconada sin igual como es la llanura de Kobetas.

El macrofestival vizcaíno vuelve para conquistar la montaña reafirmando su posición referencial en la península, con un cartel que ha resultado redondo y potente, tras un año de confirmaciones ‘in crescendo’. Desde el anuncio de la presencia en exclusiva de Depeche Mode -de relevancia indiscutible pero repetitivos tras haber pisado dos veces el escenario vizcaíno, la última vez en 2013- hasta la bomba de The Killers, uno de los mayores fenómenos del indie pop de la última década y objeto de deseo de la organización desde hace años.

Con dos jornadas que andaban ya por sí solas, parecía cojear el sábado, hasta que se dio con un combo de cocabezas con el que cerrar una fiesta de sábado noche potente, con cuerpo… y a ritmo de rave-rap: Die Antwoord, un trío sudafricano que son puro esperpento, destaca en el combo de bandas con su estilo grotesco y gamberro.

La electrónica machacona de los de Ciudad del Cabo no se subirá a las tablas hasta la madrugada. Antes, Brian Wilson echará la vista atrás recuperando el mítico ‘Pet Sounds’ de los Beach Boys y repetirán la experiencia bilbaína Two Door Cinema Club y Primal Scream. Lo último que la manada escuchará en la campa de Kobetamendi serán los discos de Marc Dorian. Éxitos indie y viajes a ‘Cualquier otra parte’ para una idílica noche de verano de festival en la cumbre de Bilbao.
