Murciano Total Dip Las Ruinas’ “La Radio Ha Muerto” in Synth Pop Gloss

Spain’s lo-fi pop duo Murciano Total have covered Las Ruinas’ anthemic “La radio ha muerto” and created a lush and dreamy version that smooths out the original’s rough edges. Where Las Ruinas sounded angry and determined, Murciano Total become numb and resigned.

The song has been released with a dead-on video using edited television footage that shows soccer match highlights, regional musicians performing, and a zombified audience listening to a televangelist. Murciano Total have taken the essence of the song to new levels of irony and by relating it to their local woes, have created a perfect cover.
