Winter Gloves smell like teen spirit

First it was Woodhands covering Katy Perry, and now, Montréal’s electro-pop group Winter Gloves have decided to hail the almighty Kurt Cobain by covering Nirvana’s hit song “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

Winter Gloves perform a haunting rendition of the song. There’s no screaming. No palpable angst. Instead, children sing the chorus and the lyrics sound like possessed whispers. There’s so much bottled up emotion that even the bubbly electronic beats can’t relieve the pressure. I’m gonna explode!

Listen to the track here:
