Signing with Bar/None Records recently, Elk City looked to find a fun way to celebrate the signing. They have done so by recording a cover of The Motels 80s classic, “Suddenly Last Summer”. Singer/songwriter Renée LoBue perfectly matches the softness from the original while her bandmates guitarist Sean Eden (of Luna fame), keyboardist Carl Baggaley, bassist Martin Olson and guitarist Chris Robertson handled the instrumentals. Drummer and producer Ray Ketchem fleshed out the sound.
“It’s our take on big 80s MTV sound”, says Ketchem in the press release. “It began as a goof, but we’ve always loved that sound and thought why not!”
“Suddenly Last Summer” is being released November to streaming services and digital retailers.
