Taken from the forthcoming three-track Valentines covers mini-EP, the ingenuously titled Latvian Batman, Belfast-based drone band Documenta have released a stream of their take on ‘TV (Girl On Fire)’ by London band The Perfect Disaster. Originally written by the latter band’s frontman Phil Parfitt and released in 1988 via Fire Records, it featured on the band’s second album, Asylum Road. Retaining the two-chorded infatuation of the original, Documenta’s masterfully understated cover features strings and a hypnotic, droning ambience reminiscent of their original material. Stream the track (released CF Records) via Soundcloud below.
