Oooooo. WILD Magazine just premiered Misfit Mod’s stellar cover of TLC’s “No Scrubs”.
There are a number of indisputable, universal truths in life. How simple they are in theory, only to end up being incredibly difficult to practice. One such principle: “No Scrubs.” Misfit Mod, aka Sarah Kelleher, takes the eternal wisdom of TLC to heart on her new cover of the 1999 classic. The London-via-New Zealand artist’s haunting, stripped-down version sounds aptly weary, like it was recorded after a late night of fending off unworthy suitors. Kelleher surely deserves better; this cover follows the February release of her debut album Islands & Islands, a carefully measured collection of moody, atmospheric synth-pop.
