A.V. Undercover: Mothers cover Glenn Frey’s “The Heat Is On”
From Beverly Hills Cop to the walls of A.V. Undercover—Mothers bring a new, almost post-punk life to the Glenn Frey classic, The Heat Is On.
Atlanta Band To Watch alumni Mothers recently stopped by the A.V. Club studio to cover Glenn Frey’s 1984 hit “The Heat Is On” - perhaps a timely tribute after the Eagles founder’s death earlier this year. I was just watching Beverly Hills Cop the other day and Frey’s jam, with its sultry sax and subtle organ, still goes. Mothers keep the bounce of the original and add a darker edge, replacing the sax flourishes with warped, surfy guitar that leaves room for Kristine Leschper’s vocals to cut through. Watch Mothers’ cover and get a refresher on the original above. -- Stereogum
