Basement are streaming a cover of Nirvana’s ‘School’.
The track is taken from the forthcoming Robotic Empire tribute to the legendary Seattle band’s debut ‘Bleach’. Titled ‘Doused In Mud, Soaked In Bleach’, the collection features takes from Circa Survive, Daughters, The Fall Of Troy and more.
Explaining the cover, Basement’s Andrew Fisher explains: “We picked ‘School‘ because it’s really heavy and so simple but so good. It has two parts the whole way through. Just goes to show how dynamics can make a song interesting. Whenever we play it I wish we wrote it because it’s that good.
“We flirted with the idea of trying to make it ‘our own’ and change it, but because the song is so simple everything we came up with sounded forced and wrong. Instead we thought we’d try our best to do the song justice and so recorded it live and tried to keep it as true to the original as possible. I think it came out pretty cool.”
