Cover of Dominic Waxing Lyrical to mark that band's forthcoming album

The last thing we heard by George McFall, aka Clean George IV and now CGIV, was his excellent 2012 debut album, God Save The Clean. Now, in anticipation of Dominic Waxing Lyrical releasing a new album on McFall's label Tenement Records later this year, he's covered that band's 1997 track 'Change'. McFall retains the original's cuttingly direct vocal style, but trades in the jaggedly melodic guitar clank for kinetic, strident synth leads working their way through to ace, fuzzed break at the halfway mark - fingers crossed it heralds a new spate of recordings from CGIV.

McFall's kindly given us a first look at the video - have a watch of it above and head here to get hold of the track.
