‘Tainted Love’ was first released by Gloria Jones back in 1964, and she re-released it in 1976, in a recording produced by her boyfriend, Marc Bolan. It then became a smash hit on both sides of the Atlantic when Soft Cell released it in 1981. Now, in the hands of Berlin’s Milky Chance, it’s been given a new lease on life, not merely bringing it into the 21st century, but making it sound like it’s a Milky Chance original.
‘Mr Perfect’ is the latest track from The Tailormade, who we first came across back in 2015. Comprising Jack Frimston, Matt Pickersgill, and Aaron Murphy, the indie-pop trio are currently in the midst of their ‘Coffee House Sessions’ Tour, and will be performing in London on Friday 19 January, at Queen Mary University and University College London, and Sunday 21st, at Camden Market (3pm) and Paper Dress Vintage, Hackney at 6.30pm.
