MADRE SUN DELIVER STUNNING ACOUSTIC COVER OF SOULFUL 70S CLASSIC ‘EVERYBODY’S GOTTA LIVE’
Madre Sun – ‘Everybody’s Gotta Live’
|Trading the blasting, riff-heavy classic rock found in their debut EP for something a little more laid back, London-based outfit MADRE SUN have released a gorgeous, stripped-back cover of the Arthur Lee/Love classic, ‘Everybody’s Gotta Live’.
Originally featured on Lee’s 1972 debut solo album ‘Vindicator’ and later appearing on Love’s seventh and final studio album, ‘Reel to Real’ in 1974, ‘Everybody’s Gotta Live’ has been brought into the spotlight in more recent times on the soundtrack to the 2019 comedy-drama film Jojo Rabbit.
Now, Madre Sun guitarists Matt Cavina and Tyson Schenker trade fuzzed-up amps for a crisp acoustic tone – with vocalist Eduardo Cavina providing a bluesy, soulful tone to the song’s heartfelt lyrics – in the band’s exceptional cover version.
“As soon as I heard this song I fell in love with it,” comments Madre Sun’s Tyson Schenker on the band’s latest music release. “My girlfriend heard it playing in a café and told me I should check it out.”
“I love the simplicity of it but the message is powerful and honest. We are born and then we die, simple as that. Enjoy and appreciate the life you have.”
Blasting a nostalgic blend of riff-heavy classic rock inspired by greats such as AC/DC, Guns ‘n’ Roses and Aerosmith, London-based outfit MADRE SUN have unveiled the brand new music video for their EP single, ‘Black River’.
The band – which features second-generation guitarist Tyson Schenker and Brazilian brothers (by both blood and rock ‘n’ roll) Eduardo and Matt Cavina – have drawn once more from their debut EP ‘The Speed Of Light’, which released earlier this year on 24th July. The EP saw huge success in the Cavina brothers’ home country, where it entered the Brazilian iTunes Album Chart at #15 and received 40k Spotify streams in the first week of release. Madre Sun have also seen support from American music historian, radio personality, talk show host and author Eddie Trunk, who tweeted the music video for their previous single ‘Trick Up The Sleeve’ and spoke of them as a “killer sounding new band” that he was “excited to keep an eye on”.
Making reference to the Cavina brother’s hometown of Rio Preto (or “Black River” in English), Madre Sun’s latest video single dishes out a bright, feel-good rock ‘n’ roll vibe that not only revisits childhood memories, but also serves another purpose; The accompanying music video sees a myriad of Madre Sun’s fans and friends rocking out to the track, with music enthusiasts of all ages coming together to enjoy the band’s high-octane offering.
