Local H Give Lorde's 'Team' A Rock Makeover
The video for Local H's version of "Team" was directed by frontman Scott Lucas. He explains why they selected the track to record, "I remember going down a Lorde rabbit hole on YouTube last summer, and the song that really stuck with me was 'Team,'" recalls Lucas.
"The lyrics killed me. They were everything I'd been wanting to hear someone say in a pop song. I sorta teared up a little. I tried playing an acoustic version at a show in January, but quickly realized that the song was an anthem and should be rocked out. Besides, acoustic Lorde is the Boss's territory now."
The two man group recorded the track at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio, along with two other new songs, with their producer Andy Gerber. Check out the video here.
"Rather than wait until we have enough songs for a full length, we just wanna record the songs as they come to try and capture that energy when it's new and exciting," explains Lucas. "We also want to record the odd cover here and there for our next 'Awesome Mix Tape' EP."
Fans can catch the band out on the road this spring. They are kicking off the new North American tour tonight, April 16th, in Indianapolis, IN and will conclude the trek on June 7th in Des Moines.
