ABSOLUTExclusive: Farraday Covers The Get Up Kids

Posted by: Christian Wagner (11/22/13)
Doing a cover song is always a huge risk and when you're covering a sentimental iconic emo band like The Get Up Kids, you better make sure you do the song justice. Chicago's Farraday automatically has a unique advantage, utilizing the strong vocals of its powerful frontwoman, Aubyn. Listen to their cover of "Action & Action" in the replies which comes from A Tribute To The Get Up Kids coming out on Pacific Ridge Records.

WOW, these guys are great! I'd have to rank them in my top 5 local Chicago bands along with Coventry, Operation Mongoose, Mr. Switch and the Bladetones, and Second Star From the Left.

This album was my life in college!!! Listened to it SO much back then. Sentimental iconic emo band??? GOD THAT MAKES ME FEEL OLD. hahaha.

Was really nervous about this compilation, but so far so good. The band did a great job on this song.

you picked one of their 2 songs that are nothing like their other songs. while it is still their song, it's not the direction they are going in or have focused on. they put out 2 songs under Modern Short Stories and they were both in a dance pop direction. nothing wrong with some experimentation. they are a pop punk band mainly and from what i've heard from their new songs, the dance stuff is gone. give them another chance when their new stuff comes out next month.
or check out their old EP.
