Following on from the bands Maida Vale session for Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, Gengahr have released their cover version of Kendrick Lamar’s track ‘ Love’.

Frontman Felix explains, “This week we would have been on our way to play Glastonbury festival for the third time. It’s home to some amazing memories for us as a band and it’s cancellation this year was the most painful of them all. A few months back we played this cover on Annie Mac’s R1 show and the response was so good that we ended up playing it again throughout the Sanctuary tour. Kendrick would have been the jewel in the Glastonbury crown this year so it seemed fitting that we record and release a studio version of the track to commemorate this lost moment in time.”

The guys have worked their magic and taken this urban track and turned it into a pop gem. The drums keep some part of the original vibe with the rest being skilfully crafted by the band. Smoothing out the broken lyrical style of the original and adding slightly over driven guitars to pick out the melody replacing the synths of Lamar’s version.
