Watch: Destroyer delivers powerful cover of Lou Reed’s ‘Ecstasy’

An unbelievable performance of Reed's 2000 track

Destroyer recently delivered an unbelievable cover of Lou Reed’s Ecstasy.

In the middle of their set at Brooklyn Steel, frontman Dan Bejar paused to reveal that he would “try and read this Lou Reed poem.” The rest of the band then launched into the quirky instrumental line as Bejar delivered half-sung-half-spoken lyrics from the 2000 track, making for a gritty performance of the tune.
