Divus Julius presents: Måneskin

With their raw, energetic and distorted sound, Måneskin are bringing rock’n’roll back to the top of international charts with a contemporary twist.

Måneskin is an almost unnervingly lithe band of 20-somethings who can squeeze into ’70s David Bowie bodysuits (or, as is often the case at photo shoots, squeeze out of them). It emerged victorious at 2021’s Eurovision Song. But Måneskin is an anomaly in a rap- and pop-driven era: a guitar/bass/drums combo indebted to Queen and T. Rex that performs largely in Italian and whose breakout U.S. single was a cover of the Four Seasons’ oldies staple “Beggin’.”

Best Covers: Brendon Urie “Under Pressure”

Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie joined The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon for a cover of the Queen and David Bowie classic “Under Pressure” from the safety of their homes.

Urie and Fallon performed the hit backed by The Roots – some of whom played household items like pots, glasses and a toaster.

“Under Pressure” was released in 1981 and included on Queen’s 1982 album Hot Space. The song’s bass line was sampled on Vanilla Ice’s 1990 hit “Ice Ice Baby.”

Hit of the week: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds ‘Black Star Dancing’

Noel Gallagher, it seems, was not content to let his brother Liam Gallagher get all the solo record glory and has announced his newest EP. He’s gone as far as to share the EP’s title track to whet your appetite. But it’s nothing like you’d expect.

The track is a space-tinged groove which has more in common with EDM than Britpop and will see Noel move into a new sphere. He opened up about some of his influences for the record “It manages to combine the influences of David Bowie, INXS, U2, Queen, Indeep and ZZ Top!,” said the former Oasis leading man.

Best Covers: Panic! At The Disco ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

After covering the Queen classic in concert for quite some time, Brendon Urie and his boys finally got the chance to record their version of “Bohemian Rhapsody” as part of the Suicide Squad​ soundtrack. The song might not have quite the same affect as if you were to hear it in person, but the recorded rendition still brings on the chills.

Le Classique: Queen “Bohemian Rapsody”

En Mariscal Mauro ens presenta el clàssic d’aquesta setmana aprofitant el concert que uns descafeinats Queen donen avui a Barcelona. El nostre classique és “Bohemian Rapsody”.

Amb una carrera de més de 40 anys, la banda britànica Queen ha acumulat una llista impressionant d’èxits, vendes i premis. Bona part del mèrit la va tenir la figura de Freddie Mercury, la seva llegendària veu principal i coautor principal de la banda, que completaven en la seva formació de més èxit Brian May, Roger Taylor i John Deacon (ja retirat). Des de la mort de Mercury el 1991, la banda mai s’ha separat oficialment, i els seus components han acumulat fites de dubtosa qualitat i èxit, tant junts, separats, en pau o barallats. L’última fita ha estat incorporar a les seves files com a vocalista principal a Adam Lambert, conegut mundialment per participar en la vuitena temporada del talent show americà ‘American Idol’, on va quedar segon. Avui al Palau Sant Jordi.
