The Truth: back in the pandemic-stricken spring of 2020, when the fizzing coronavirus ensured that the playing of gigs suddenly became as practical as the flying of pigs, fierce panda asked its freshly incarcerated acts to choose a favourite tune by a.n.other band with which to rockdown in lockdown. These covers would form the Covid Version Sessions, casual home recordings designed to capture the unsettling mood of the moment, and now those recordings are all seeing the digital release light of day throughout the autumn.

Enter GHOST SUNS, the darkwaving French electropop duo who consist of Jeremy Levy and Lola Bastard and who cook up enthralling synth-singed melody nuggets with a knowing retro coating which has been described as “the perfect soundtrack to ‘Stranger Things”. Across three EP releases – ‘We Are Not Good People’, ‘Testify’ and ‘Horizon’ - they have proven themselves to be moody, but quietly entertaining; broody, but curiously welcoming; deadpan, but nonchalantly uplifting.

Fittingly then, their chosen Covid Version is neo-legendary smackdowned anti-ballad ‘Hurt’ by industrial stormtroopers Nine Inch Nails. It originally appeared on ‘The Downward Spiral’ album in 1994, the very year fierce panda was launched, and the no-less-infamous cover by Johnny Cash came in 2002, at which point an impressed Trent Reznor was quoted as saying “that song isn’t mine anymore.”

Ghost Suns’ suitably spooked take on ‘Hurt’ is the third of the fierce panda Covid Version releases in the wake of woozy dreamboats MOON PANDA, who took The Strokes’ ‘Call It Fate, Call It Karma’ outside for a big cosmic cuddle and DESPERATE JOURNALIST’s fearless lunge at ‘The Fear’ by Pulp. More CV tunes from JEKYLL, CHINA BEARS and NATIONAL SERVICE coming soon…
