Woods cover The Kinks’ “God’s Children” for a new b-side (playing Morgan’s Pier on 7/24)
It’s a transitional time for Brooklyn’s Woods, as the indie rock band prepares to move out of their recording studio and home Rear House and welcomes a new drummer to the fold. On the heels of last year’s Bend Beyond LP, the quartet will mark the new chapter with the release of a new 7″ in July that will include a cover of The Kinks’ “God’s Children” on the b-side. The track was written by Ray Davies and originally recorded in 1971 for the soundtrack to Percy. Woods’ version re-examines the song through a Simon & Garfunkel-like sonic lens, highlighting the socially conscious lyrics and retaining its vintage aura and atmosphere. Woods will play a free show at Morgan’s Pier with Parquet Courts on July 24th; more information can be found here. Stream “God’s Children” below.
