The Durutti Column Vs. Monarchy

The Durutti Column

Neon Gold’s SynthPop card up their sleeve, Monarchy, have dropped this wonderfully dark edit of Manchester Post-Punk legends The Durutti Column’s ‘My Country’.

The original is clearly recognisable here, but what is done works so well. The addition of the beat, strings and a sprinkling of synth work all combine to pull the song into the 21st century whilst loosing none of the atmosphere that made the original what it was.
