Parquet Courts share cover of Silver Apples’ ‘I Have Known Love’

Parquet Courts have shared a cover of Silver Apples’ “I Have Known Love.”

Following the release of their new album, Sympathy For Life, Parquet Courts took to SiriusXMU to deliver a live set. During the performance, they covered Silver Apples’ 1969 Contact track, I Have Known Love.

The cover is pretty percussive heavy, as Parquet Courts deliver groovy bass lines. Frontman Andrew Savage channels the sounds of Silver Apples’ retro vocal lines. On the cover, he sings famous lines like, “I have known love and love has won/ I burned my fingers on the sun.”

Sympathy For Life sees Parquet Courts exploring a new genre of thought-provoking rock. While staying true to their unique sound, the band is be at their most instinctive on the follow-up to 2018’s Wide Awake. The record sees Parquet Courts critiquing late capitalism beneath jam-heavy instrumentals and heavy riffs.

You can really hear their new sound on the way they cover “I Have Known Love.”

Wide Awake! was a record you could put on at a party,” co-frontman Austin Brown explains. “Sympathy For Life is influenced by the party itself. Historically, some amazing rock records have been made from mingling in dance music culture – from Talking Heads to Screamadelica. Our goal was to bring that into our own music. Each of us, in our personal lives, has been going to more dance parties. Or rather, we were pre-pandemic, which is when this record was made.”

The new album features previously released singles “Black Widow Spider,” “Walking at a Downtown Pace,” “Plant Life” and “Homo Sapien.”
