Trope Covers Tears For Fears' “Shout”
- Los Angeles-based alt-rock band Trope covered British pop rock band Tears For Fears' “Shout”.
The band released the song back in April with an accompanying music video, directed by Stewart Whelan.
The song will appear on their upcoming debut album “Eleutheromania”.
“Shout” was released by Tears For Fears as the second single from their second studio album “Songs from the Big Chair” in 1985. The song reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Frontwoman Diana Studenberg said of the song, “Due to the song’s pop sensibility and 4/4 beat, it didn’t fit into the Trope realm at the time. But as things progressed and electronic instrumentation was replaced with organic instruments including bass, guitars and ebow, the tune took a darker turn and actually really worked for Trope.”
She continues, “How many of us have been in situations where we’re mistreated and looked down on by people who just don’t recognize our value? I believe, in life, we shouldn’t have to placate or put on a clown face and do a fucking happy dance to appease people who behave toxically towards us and lack the foresight to really see who’s in front of them. I see this whole song as a reaffirmation of value and strength and of our ability to move past these situations and people and towards the things that help elevate us emotionally and spiritually.”
