Track Of The Day: PELA – ‘Here’s Where The Story Ends’

A charming cover of The Sundays’ 1990 single ‘Here’s Where The Story Ends’, Brighton-based duo PELA have shared their version of the alt-rock band’s famous hit. PELA decided to record the cover to share with listeners as a “little souvenir of a terrible year,” a sentiment which resonates deeper as we approach the end of 2020.

Formed of Hannah Coombes and Olly Shelton, PELA are inspired by the sun-soaked sounds of The Japanese House, HAIM and Jessie Ware. The duo have worked their dream-pop magic on The Sundays’ classic track with “a wash of vocoder, ad-lib imprints mixed with deep Moog bass lines and pads add to the modern indie interpretation of this irreverent hyper melodic song.” The result is a beautiful rendition full of Coombes gentle vocals and Shelton’s tentative beats.

Tash and Kate were raging and raving in the Hoxton Radio studio this week, playing tunes by some of the female artists they believe should have made the cut for the Reading & Leeds Festival 2021 lineup (six headliners, all of them male…JOKERS.)
