Cover Friday: Orange sector

Blog tag

Kim Wilde has released many songs during her career. Some of them have been covered by other artists. On Cover Friday, Wilde Life presents cover versions of Kim Wilde songs. This week: Orange sector.

Electric Body Music is a music genre that combines elements of post-industrial music and electropunk. (We got that from Wikipedia, folks!) In Hannover (Germany), Orange Sector was one of the bands to make this kind of music since they formed in 1992. Members Lars Feiker and Martin Bodewell have released 12 albums between then and now, as well as a handful of singles. Their first single, released in 1994, was a cover version of 'Kids in America'.

When you listen to their version (below), you'll immediately notice the electronic intro and the slightly off-key vocals. Musically, it's slightly more interesting than the punkrock-inspired covers that have been made by many other bands. The CD-single features two versions, as it adds a slightly longer Crunchy Fancy mix. Oh, and a cover version of Kiss's 'I was made for loving you' to boot.
