Following on from their team up with New Order’s Peter Hook for their last single ‘Becoming The Wraith’, autoKratz had paid tribute to their collaborator by covering on of my favourite New Order tracks, ‘Temptation’.
It’s a nice update to the original. A pretty straight cover with a kicking beat added and a touch of modern production to bring the song into the 21st century. It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Bernard Sumner singing ‘Temptation’ but autoKratz’ David Cox’s vocals lend themselves really well to the track. I’m loving all the New Order connections autoKratz are pulling out in the run up to their new album, ’Self help For Beginners’, being release. If the album has this kind of vibe then it could be something special indeed.
‘Self Help For Beginners’ is out 20 June on Studio !K7
