Florida’s You Blew It! are releasing a whole EP of Weezer covers called You Blue It in July, and this is the first track from it that’s been released as a teaser.
While I’m not Weezer’s biggest fan, it’s interesting to see one band cover so much of another’s work and put their own spin on it. The EP will have five songs on it, and will be released digitally on July 15th with a vinyl version to follow on August 12th.
Frontman/guitarist Tanner Jones says:
“We chose Surf Wax because it’s a really great song, plain and simple. We didn’t want to do singles from the record, and luckily Surf Wax is one of those cuts that could have held its own as one, but seemed untouched enough to allow a fresh perspective on it. Not that we or any other band could, but we really didn’t want to try and out-do Weezer. Our goal was to add our touch to Blue, but first and foremost, we wanted pay tribute to the songs themselves in the most respectful way possible. Surf Wax is a great example of that I think.”
