The Tough Alliance: “Hung Up on a Dream”

The Tough Alliance

The Tough Alliance, one of the leaders of Sweden’s impressive electropop revival, recently recorded a cover of “Hung Up on a Dream” from The Zombies’ still relatively underrated masterpiece Odessey & Oracle. Eric Berglund and Henning F├╝rst flush out the original’s fragile melancholy into a polished, ethereal, head-nodding synth jam. Surprisingly successful to say the least.

Buy: It doesn’t have this cover on it, but you should still pick up 2007’s widely acclaimed A New Chance as mp3s or on CD over at Insound.
