Video: Cults – “Everybody Knows” (Leonard Cohen cover)

Advertisement

    If you’ve ever seen the Christian Slater epic Pump Up the Volume, then you should be familiar with Leonard Cohen‘s haunting lullaby “Everybody Knows”. It’s downright spooky, especially the way Cohen croons in that Oogie Boogie baritone of his. Recently, Manhattan duo Cults took a jab at the track, excising the churning synths in lieu of “Tubular Bells”-styled piano work. It’s also creepy, but vocalist Madeline Follin is hardly anyone to be running away from. Check it out below, courtesy of Cover Me.

    In related news, Leonard Cohen returns with his new LP, Old Ideas, on January 31st via Columbia (sample the track “Going Home” here.) On the other hand, Cults is currently on the road amidst a global tour, which includes a stop at Orlando’s Orange You Glad Festival. Peep the full itinerary below.
