WOLF SAGA Ft. Lyon – “You Only Live Once (The Strokes Cover)”

Who knew The Strokes wrote a song called YOLO?

BAND - WOLF SAGA

A few days ago, up-and-coming artist WOLF SAGA (a moniker for Johnny W. Saga) along with the beautiful LYON (AKA Lauren Lyon) revealed some remarkable work on SoundCloud.

Inspired by 80’s pop and modern indie rock, the duo covered The Strokes’ piece “You Only Live Once” to great success. The song opens with some non-distinct synth noises over a wind recording that slowly starts to form into a subtle background melody. Once the bass line kicks in and LYON starts singing, you have no choice but to keep listening.

My personal favorite part is the chorus, when a GLORIOUS chord progression pops in along with WOLF SAGA himself to accompany LYON.

I am butchering this review and doing this song no justice. If you are still reading, props to you.
