O’Brother Stream Cover Of Portishead’s “Silence”


O’Brother are streaming a cover of Portishead‘s “Silence“, vocalist Tanner Merritt commented of it:

“We’ve been talking about doing a Portishead cover for years. They are a huge influence on us, but different enough stylistically that we believed it could be appropriate. ‘Third‘ is collectively one of our favorite records and I can say personally that the bookends of this record (the opening and closing track) are my favorite. So for our first time ever recording a cover, we decided to do two. ‘Silence‘ is part one of this two part series that we self-recorded in our rehearsal space for shiggles, and we had a blast learning and recreating and paying homage to one of the best bands.”
