Overhead, the AlbatrossDublin post-rockers cover Hans Zimmer’s Time

What you may need to know…

01. Last we checked in with Overhead, the Albatross, they’d just launched their absolutely immense debut LP Learning to Growl.

02. Today, the band has released a wee stopgap between now and their big December gig in Vicar Street: their first ever attempt at a cover. Hans Zimmer’s Time, accompanied by Charlie Chaplin’s final speech from The Great Dictator. For the time that’s in it.

03. The video for same, directed by Luke Daly, is streaming above.

04. The band’s big year-end excursion happens at Vicar Street, December 9th. Tickets €20 plus various service fees.

Verdict: A brave take on a masterpiece, layered over with the pep-talk humanity needs at present.

    So they basically just ripped the idea of the viral mash video that has been doing the rounds for last age.

  2. Above, The Crow

    It’s a cover of this viral video from 2011 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8HdOHrc3OQ

    Video production is quality.

    It’s about 5 years too late though. That speech is beautiful but every ladypart and his mother thinks so too. It’s lost all emotion because of over saturation.

    I understand OTA played this live years ago. They don’t move with any pace, it seems. They’ll be covering Justin Timblerlake – “Cry Me a River” in 2 years…..
