Human League vs. She Wants Revenge

23 03 2010

I was just listening to Human League’s Dare CD in the car and it finally hit me after 4 years where exactly She Wants Revenge took their sound. I was thinking more goth-Bauhaus with the very Bela Lugosi intro, but this synth pop track was right under my big nose. Take a listen to both and tell me what you think.

Human League’s Seconds

She Wants Revenge’s Tear You Apart

The vocals are kinda dead on.

They both sound like The Killers to me, so despite the chronological order of release I’m going to credit Brandon Flowers because he’s hot. :o) And yes, definitely Peter Murphy too. Bauhaus and Human League formed about the same time, so who knows. I’d never heard that “Seconds” song, so thanks for schooling me. :o)
