Like me, you might not know the Deftones song “Hole In The Earth” by its title, but you’ll certainly recognize it just as soon as the vocals come in. Released 13 years ago next month, the song has definitely achieved the title of classic. Now, AWAY has reinvented the song for the modern age with help from Midoca. Whereas Deftones obviously infuse their original with more rock elements, AWAY strips it down to the bare melody and adds a drove of glitchy elements. Midoca absolutely nails the vocals, coming damn near close to Chino Moreno’s original work.
All together, this cover is a brilliant tribute to the Deftones’ work and a phenomenal new track from AWAY to put away in our playlists. Check it out below.
