Listen to Drenge Cover Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’
English duo Drenge, who have made a name for themselves with the help of their raucous brand of grunge-influenced rock, recently served up their singular take on Taylor Swift’s 1989 single, “Bad Blood.” Take a listen below.
Drenge’s cover was captured during the band’s live sessions for Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show earlier this week. Instead of all the theatrics that came along with a Kendrick Lamar verse and the celebrity-packed music video for Swift’s song, Drenge -- which consists of brothers Eoin and Rory Loveless -- opted for a nervy, rapid-fire take much more suited to their style.
Drenge dropped their sophomore full-length, Undertow, back in April. The brothers are currently on tour in Europe, and last night (June 25), they played a surprise show at Glastonbury, helping kick off the annual festival. Their unannounced set was followed by another from Wolf Alice, whom Eoin joined on stage for their song, “Moaning Lisa Smile.”
Drenge will make their way to the U.S. in September, first playing a show in Pawtucket, R.I., on Sept. 29. Then, they’re scheduled to make stops in Minneapolis, Chicago, Phoenix, San Diego and San Francisco. Check out a complete itinerary on their website.
