L.A. indie rockers Warpaint have shared a lyric video for their cover version of Gang of Four's "Paralysed".
The cover features on the tribute album The Problem of Leisure: A Celebration of Andy Gill and Gang of Four, a compilation in honor of the late guitarist, out on May 14th. Get it here.
The song originally features on the post-punk pioneers' 1981 album, Solid Gold.
Warpaint’s Jenny Lee, who produced her group’s version of “Paralysed,” explained in a statement: “’The change will do me good.’ (Damaged Goods). Best piece of advice that pretty much changed my life. Not to mention Dave Allen’s bass playing also changed me forever. Made me wanna play bass."
“It was cool to get inside of ‘Paralysed,’ and for Gang Of Four to give us freedom to freak out in our way… it was a beautiful opportunity and we’re SOOO excited,” she furthered. “It’s an honor actually to be a part of Andy’s tribute.”
