Happy Families, “I Remember You”

Dayna Evans

Bowery Electric have gone on to form a new project, misleadingly titled Happy Families, and in their first release, two tracks provide a look at a band as haunted as Joy Division and marred by cold, artistic-tinged introspection. The B-side of their first single is a cover of The Ramones' “I Remember You”, a great and unpredictable choice for the duo, as it takes what we know to be a poppy, easy listen into a edgy, disillusioned mania that drones on into oblivion. Simplified and minored-down, the track is as if you took the original Ramones melody and twisted it through a jagged hole in a wire fence. It takes on a metallic voice and a stonecold, heavy-felt sincerity that wreaks of discomfort. Listen to the track below, then compare notes by hearing The Ramones do it the first time around.
