New Zealand’s She’s So Rad has released its own interpretation of Julee Cruise‘s Rockin’ Back Inside My Heart, as first heard on the David Lynch-directed “Lonely Souls” episode of Twin Peaks. The three-piece band’s shoegaze version preserves the butterflies-in-the-stomach feel of the original written by Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch, and its distortion and echo pedal effects effortlessly warp us back to the early 90s, when the game-changing episode first aired. And I’ve got good news: the MP3, mixed by David Holmes of Ocean’s Eleven/Twelve/Thirteen fame, can be downloaded for free!
Here’s a video of She’s So Rad performing the Rockin’ Back Inside My Heart cover live at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on May 11 2012, where they supported Ladyhawke.
