LA based punk quintet Spanish Love Songs have just released an emotive cover of Blink 182‘s “I Miss You”.
“Blink 182 has always been one of the bands of our lives — half of us learned to play our instruments by jamming to their songs.” says Dylan Slocum (vocals/guitar). “I covered ‘I Miss You” on a live stream last Halloween. The response was amazing, and a few people asked for a full band version. The original is so iconic that we didn’t want to attempt to recreate it — the world doesn’t need another Blink impersonation. So instead, we gave it a shot, and just tried to blow the whole song up.”
Listen to the cover here:
The band previously decided to cover their favourite Death Cab song thanks to the helps of the Patreon members which was set up during lockdown. Each month they would do a poll for songs for the band to cover from their various locations across the US & this was one of the choices.
Listen to previous releases this year “Phantom Limb”, a B-side from Brave Faces Everyone and the other, a wonderful cover of “Blacking Out The Friction”, the band’s favourite by Death Cab For Cutie.
