An old English cover version of a Rolling Stones classic? Sounds weird – it is. When Fritz Stieleke, former Old-English lecturer at the Heinrich-Heine-University in Düsseldorf, approached the Düsseldorf band MAY, they were immediately taken with it. The plan was to release the version with Old-English lyrics for Mick Jagger’s 77th birthday on 26.07.2020.
MAY now delivers an awesome, upscale version with playful electronics and brutal noise guitars. With the old english vocals of Maewa it becomes an independent timeless classic!
MAY present modern Indietronic from the capital of electronic music, which is placed in a postmodern style mix between Garbage, The XX or alt-J. Often also compared to the grandiose Gwen Stefani.
