Download the Best Cover of Alice DeeJay’s “Better Off Alone” Ever

failure II

Last night, Mat Cothran and Delaney Mills (who both play in the South Carolina DIY pop band Elvis Depressedly) released Failure II, a collection of four lo-fi covers that they recorded at home in one day. They’re all kind of perfect, but it’s their emotionally vulnerable, half-stoned interpretation of Alice DeeJay’s late-90s Eurodance staple “Better Off Alone” that I can’t stop replaying this morning. Buy/stream/download Failure II below; it’s not technically an Elvis Depressedly release, but since all four songs are so consistently filtered through their specific aesthetic, it kind of could be. Sidebar, I just realized there are YouTube commenters who think David Guetta made the original “Better Off Alone,” smdh.
