Almost exactly a year ago we featured Jedward’s John Grimes’ cover of the Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber single, ‘Monster’. Now we bring you another take on the song, by The Veer Union. Unlike John’s rendition, which saw him sing accompanied only by his acoustic guitar, and indeed, the original song, which was a dance pop number – in the hands of The Veer Union, and featuring Late Night Savior & Stealing Eden, the song is shaken from its pop foundations and given a more punk, almost heavy metal treatment.
Fame at a young age can have a dramatic effect on a person, a fact to which Justin Bieber, and fellow Canadian and former child star, Shawn Mendes, can certainly attest. The pair last month released their collaborative single, ‘Monster’, in which they recount the roller coaster ride each has been through, the highs and lows of being hot and then not – and what it does to one’s mental health and well-being.
