Carrying on the theme of Echo & The Bunnymen providing tracks for Vampire related media and their propensity for delivering incredible covers, this take on The Doors single from 1967 suggests that McCulloch could easily have stood in for Jim Morrison on the band’s 2002 reformation, a part filled byThe Doorss Ian Astbury. This cover gained the band further cult status by association with movie fans and remains a classic late 80s cut. Revel in the fuzzy VHS quality of the MTV clip.
The Visual is an Amsterdam-based outfit consisting of Anna van Rij (vocals/guitar), Timon Persoon (synths/electronics/keys) and Tim van Oosten (drums/percussion). Signed to Mink Records in 2017, they released their debut EP ‘Translation’ on December 15th 2017 at packed show at one of Amsterdam’s finest venues: de Melkweg.
That dreamy, cinematic quality runs through all eight tracks of the band’s debut album ‘Moments Of Being” released last year. Jim Morrison and Nick Cave are touchstones too, admired for their intensity and passion, but her real hero is the artist she’s most frequently been compared to, particularly in terms of singing – Jeff Buckley.
