Black Hill Transmissions release a new track, ‘It’s Up To You’, from their new EP ‘1985 (In My Mind)‘.
It’s the band’s third EP in six months, and comprises three cover versions of 1980s indie faves – as well as the lead track’s Shop Assistants song, there are also takes on The Jesus and Mary Chain’s ‘Just Out of Reach’, and New Order’s ‘Thieves Like Us’.
BHT’s Mark Scanlan said of the choice of tracks: “1985 was a standout year for me; I first heard The Jesus & Mary Chain and my mind was blown. I started buying records and what was an interest in music became an obsession.
“I bought these three songs in 1985, just before my 16th birthday. 36 years later I thought of them again and decided to record my own versions, from memory. These are homemade, lo-fi, recorded quickly; a tribute to the 1985 in my mind.”
