As if I needed more reasons to love this band.
Our Last Night, a post-hardcore melodic band known not only for their awesome originals, but also their fan-fucking-tastic covers, just released another amazing cover. This time, they covered Logic’s famous tune “1-800-273-8255,” which is the number for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline.
Bassist Woody Woodrow starts this song off with a slow strum of his guitar, before Tim comes in on the drums. Matt and Trevor Wentworth trade off between singing verses, making the song flow beautifully. The climax officially drops around 1:39, with all the instruments involved and more yelling done by Matt and Trevor. The guitars fade out alongside Matt and Trevor’s voices, bringing the same solemn vibe from Logic’s version.
One of my favorite thing about OLN’s covers is how great they blend it into the rock genre. Some bands do a shitty job of making rock versions of a song, but OLN do it very well, especially for a band who records, mixes, and produces their songs without a record label. It just goes to show that no matter what genre of music you like, most songs can translate into your favorite genre.
The original song released by Logic reached number three on the Billboard Top 100.
