Chvrches have done a very brave thing indeed. They’ve taken Bela Lugosi’s Dead by Bauhaus, yes, from the 80s and given it the Chvrches rework for the soundtrack of Vampire Academy.
Before you even listen to a track like this, you’re always going to have the purists knocking those who have covered the original, stating that it could be better and what a travesty it is to have x done to it.
Chvrches have taken the song, given it a good shake and well, Chvrchified it and have done a fantastic job on putting their stamp on it. Tune of the Week for these years.
If you’re on a mobile device you can hear the track on Soundcloud.
