Listen to Gengahr's Doe-Eyed Cover of Fugazi's "I'm So Tired"

It somehow sounds even more wistful than Ian Mackaye singing an actual melody, counting proverbial black sheep.

If being doe-eyed came with it's own personal soundtrack, it would be written by Gengahr, and I mean that as an absolute compliment; the London quartet are like the "Girls" the UK never had. Soft spoken and delicately delivered, Gengahr have just produced an argent take on post-hardcore icons Fugazi’s "I’m So Tired", which appears on the soundtrack to their Instrument documentary and remains one of the few examples of Ian Mackaye singing an actual melody.


Originally a minimal piano arrangement, Gengahr have drowned the track in a whirlpool of reverb, harmony and topped it off with 30 seconds of rightrous shredding. Somehow, the result is even more wistful than a fed up Ian Mackaye counting proverbial black sheep.

We're premiering it below. Give it a try.

Gengahr's debut album is expected to be released on June 15 via Transgressive.
