Tracks: TEARJERKER – So Dead (Version Two)

July 19, 2012

We first wrote about Toronto lo-fi/shoegaze outfit TEARJERKER back in December of last year and since that time their debut release Rare has been on regular repeat here at The iM. Recently, the band released the second single from the album, Word, along with a re-work of album track So Dead.

As far as we’re concerned So Dead (Version Two) is an epic little number and might just be better than the original version; now it’s time for you to check it out in the embed below to hear what we’re talking about.

If you haven’t heard the album Rare as of yet, we suggest you do over at the Bandcamp link above. If there’s one band we can’t get enough of right now in the Toronto music scene, it’s definitely TEARJERKER.
