If you have been following Song Per Day for a while, you know that we are low-key obsessed with cover songs. Today’s song recommendation is a languid, psychedelic version of George Harrison’s “Fish On The Sand” by LA rock band Allah-Las.
Allah-Las are an American rock band from Los Angeles, California. The group was founded in 2008, when school friends Matt Correia and Spencer Dunham met Pedrum Siadatian while working together at Amoeba Records in Los Angeles. They began jamming, and together with Correia and Dunham’s fellow school friend, Miles Michaud, formed the band.
On November 3, 2017, the band released the EP Covers #1 on Mexican Summer. The EP consists of four covers of songs by George Harrison, Television, Kathy Heideman, and Further. Fish On the Sand is one of these covers.
Noisey‘s Lindsay MaHarry said of the EP: “Despite their sound’s inherent lightheartedness, the weight of a certain melancholy is palpable. It’s a dichotomy that, on both Covers #1 and the band’s previous releases, elevates Allah Las’s work beyond the confines of the two-dimensional 60s pop they’re often compared to.”
