This is the second track from the band’s Heroes Series – a collection of covers of tracks from their musical inspirations. This follows their first, a haunting cover of “Rent” by Pet Shop Boys which climbed to #2 on Hypemachine. “Who Will Take My Dreams Away” was written and recorded by Marianne Faithfull and Angelo Badalamenti’.
‘I’d been re-watching Twin Peaks recently and I’ve always adored the music. It set a tone and character to the show.’ explains Ian. ‘ Angelo Badalamenti bought an atmosphere which engaged you and set the tone. Marianne Faithfull’s voice can somehow twist a melody or a lyric to make everything personal to the listener. For me the track is uplifting, it’s about friendship, lost love and having the people around you that you care about most.’
‘Marianne Faithfull is a true icon of music and old school glamour – when we heard this incredible song along with Badalamenti’s stunning arrangement we knew it was special.
It’s rare that you come across something that stops you in your tracks and makes you really listen’ adds Francesca.
I AM A CAMERA’s recent single “The Legendary Children” is currently setting dance floors ablaze, already at #15 on the Upfront Club charts. They will be releasing the follow up early December and are currently putting some live dates together.
