Mood Music: Icarus The Owl - "A Thousand Miles (Vanessa Carlton Cover)"





Mood Music: Icarus The Owl - "A Thousand Miles (Vanessa Carlton Cover)"

If you were anything like most of the mid-2000's Myspace crowd, it's incredibly likely you got down with all those Punk Goes... compilations. There was Punk Goes Acoustic and Punk Goes Crunk (which was of course as hilariously good as it sounds), but Punk Goes Pop definitely gave them both a run for their money. The best of the scene tried their hand at covering songs from the top of the pop charts, but since the last volume of it came out in 2014, we haven't gotten the same pop punk fulfillment.

Thank you, Icarus The Owl, and your cover of Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles" for filling that void.

Premiering via Alternative Press a little over a week ago, Icarus The Owl's cover of this piano playing staple features the classic technical drumming and mastered guitar playing we usually see from the band, along with some three part harmonies that really bring the cover to life.

On taking on the song, the band says: "This song is timeless to us and we've always jokingly played the main riff while sound checking on stage. We decided it was time to do a proper cover. Also the scene in White Chicks."

That movie, yes. All of it, yes. Give it a listen below.
