Xiu Xiu – The Only Girl In The World

I’m probably very behind with this, but my excuse is I’ve had no internet, so there! And off such childish matters, here is a fantastic Rihanna cover by Xiu Xiu.

 

To be released as a double A-side with new song ‘Daphny’, this Rihanna cover(/remix) has all the distinct elements of Xiu Xiu, very much carrying on from the sounds carved from their most recent release Dear God, I Hate Myself, yet still retains at least a smidgen of the original, as all the best covers do. As a relatively new Xiu Xiu fan it’s pretty exciting, especially along with the news that Parenthetical Girls’ Zac Pennington will be joining them for the new release (yes I know that news is very old, shhhhh).
