Covered: CAVO Unleash Fresh Take on New Order’s ‘Bizarre Love Triangle’

Filed Under:


St. Louis-based CAVO is in the midst of releasing new songs from six planned EPs — three original EPs and three cover EPs.

Most recently, the band dropped its cover of New Order’s 1986 hit “Bizarre Love Triangle.” The track has been covered by a number of artists in the past, including Frente, Stabbing Westward, and Jewel, but CAVO’s update sounds completely fresh and retro all at once.

“New Order has been one of my favorite bands since I was a kid so when we started talking about songs from the 80s to put our own spin on, I immediately started thinking about one of their songs. ‘Bizarre Love Triangle’ is obviously a classic song, but to me, it’s always represented the writing and live peak of that band, so it felt like one that would be really fun to put the CAVO spin on,” says CAVO drummer Andy Herrin. “I’ve always felt our band had a similar group effort vibe like New Order with the way each instrument shines in our songs. Whether it’s Brian’s upfront and unique bass lines, Chris’ creative and out-of-left-field guitar parts, or Casey’s unique voice and crafty lyrics, they all come together to make something special and all its own. A group effort if you will. Four people who come together musically and it creates this sound. That’s what I always loved about New Order growing up, and it’s always been something I love about our band as well.”

CAVO previously released covers of The Cars’ “Drive” and The Police’s “Synchronicity II.”

The band’s first original EP is called The Shakes and features the title track alongside “Dizzy” and “Not Over You.”
