Listen: Drenge Cover Arcade Fire

'Ready To Start' gets re-worked
Drenge

Drenge have recorded an Arcade Fire cover for Radio 1 - listen to it below.

Much of the coverage surrounding Drenge focusses on the band's live show, on their unadulterated addiction to adrenalin. Yet on record, what comes through is their commitment to songwriting, the directness of their approach.

Invited to record a live session for Radio 1, the Sheffield duo blasted through a selection from their debut album. Opting to record a cover, Drenge decided to smash through an Arcade Fire track.

'Ready To Start' is a standout from the Canadian band's concert set, but has rarely seemed so menacing, so alive as in the hands of the controversial Sheffield pairing.
