RUN TO THE HILLS

TAGAQ AND DAMIAN ABRAHAM (FUCKED UP) UNITE IN
“RUN TO THE HILLS,” IRON MAIDEN REDUX.

Tanya Tagaq and Fucked Up’s Damian Abraham join forces again on “Run To The Hills,” Iron Maiden’s colonization saga. Along with Tagaq’s regular collaborators, Retribution producer/violinist Jesse Zubot and Jean Martin on percussion, Tagaq and Abraham whisper, blister and bluster through the thrashing, galloping scene. Just don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s all in the past.

Tagaq adds “Run To The Hills” to a collection of covers that includes the Pixies’ “Caribou” and Nirvana’s “Rape Me.” Tagaq’s pointed, powerful and sometimes playful interpretations completely reframe these iconic songs; her unique approach and perspective imbue these selections with immediacy, gravity and winking irony.
