The Golden Filter – Age Of Consent (New Order cover)

Covering a New Order song is pretty much impossible. Whenever it’s attempted, invariably it feels like a cheap knock-off. But leave it to The Golden Filter to achieve the impossible. Their just-released remake of 1983’s Age of Consent, with its unmistakable bassline, starts as a soft, barely recognizable slow burn. Then it moves into the haute-synth sound the New York duo is known for, before finally morphing into a good two minutes of driving ethereal pop—uplifting, not lifted.
