MP3: The Suzan – “Paranoid” (Kanye West Cover)

The Suzan
White Lies
, I’m really happy for you, and I’ma let you finish, but The Suzan have recorded one of the best Kanye West covers of all time!

The Japanese all-girl four-piece have taken Kanye and Rihanna’s hit and stripped it down to an earnest sing-a-long. There’s no pounding 808s here. Plenty of  heartbreak though. And the faint echo of hand drums reinvents the track as a kind of gentle soliloquy.

This incredible non-album cut comes just weeks ahead of the release of The Suzan’s debut full-length, ‘Golden Week For The Poco Poco’, on A-Trak’s Fool’s Gold imprint. Straddling that line between cute/cuddly (see: below) and insanely energetic (see: lead single, “Home”) as only the Japanese can, it’s likely to prove the perfect soundtrack for campfire chorals and/or sweaty dancefloors all throughout the encroaching Summer.
