Desire Releases Their Beautiful ‘Bizarre Love Triangle’ Cover for Valentine’s Day

A new Desire cut is always a celebratory occasion, but when it’s a New Order cover the revelry is massive. For Valentine’s Day Megan Louise, Johnny Jewel, and Nat Walker have released their heartfelt and kinetic cover of the classic “Bizarre Love Triangle,” which you probably heard last year if you went to one of their gigs.

Louise’s vox will keep you under her spell, while the intricately woven synths seemingly offer a beautifully faithful homage to the original and Shep Pettibone versions — all wrapped in quintessentially Italians Do It Better tone and color. This number really does shoot through you like a bolt of blue. Listen carefully for the Easter Egg referencing another New Order cut. It’s subtle, but it’s glorious.

The single includes a tightly crafted “Dirty Disco Edit” that has been on repeat on my cans since the release dropped at midnight. You DJs out there will have fun with the a capella and instrumental versions. OK, enough from me. Go off and enjoy this release with someone special. (And if you’re in LA tonight, head over to Pinky’s in Los Feliz. Johnny Jewel is DJing from 8 pm to 2 am for free.)
