FIDLAR and Bully cover The Magnetic Fields’ “Absolutely Cuckoo” — listen

Ahead of the bands' joint European tour this month


FIDLAR and CoSigned punks Bully will spend most of November touring all across Europe together. Before they dish out their broiling rock stylings to Londoners and Parisians, though, they’ve teamed up to record a rather unexpected cover: The Magnetic Fields’ 69 Love Songs track “Absolutely Cuckoo”.

Here, FIDLAR and Bully’s penchant for all things sweaty intensity (see top-notch LPs: Too and Feels Like) is swapped in favor of something decidedly more gentle, and it ends up working exceptionally well in that cutesy, low-key sort of way. The cover, which was recorded at a Quality Inn in Portland, is accompanied by a similarly charming video of “talking” cats and dogs.

Check it out below, followed by the dates of their joint tour.
