For their forthcoming fifth album, contemporary Greek synthpop duo Marsheaux — Marianthi Melitsi and Sophie Sarigiannidou — have decided to remake a classic, recording a song-by-song cover of Depeche Mode’s 1982 sophomore record A Broken Frame.
Marsheaux’s album, also titled A Broken Frame, is out now digitally, and will be released on Feb. 23 on vinyl and expanded CD. The group also has posted all 10 tracks on its Soundcloud page; we’ve assembled them into a playlist that you can stream below.
Check it out:
Love their interpretation of this album, been listening to quite a bit this past week. Hoping they’ll tour the States to promote this album. Their album Lumineux Noir is a favorite, love their sound.
That’s really nice on the ears.
This is pretty killer.
The original recording is one of my fave albums Eva!
This is fabulous!
Sorry, I listened to this and it stinks. A Broken Frame is my 3rd favourite DM album after Music For The Masses and Black Celebration. In my opinion it sounds like a bunch of soulless androids went in and somehow managed to remove any kind of warmth or humanity from the album. I like A Broken Frame but that doesn’t mean I like Marsheax. Ugh.
this is great, a superb tribute
…but nobody tops DMK!
I’m loving this!
The very reason I will never shell out hard earned cash to see DM again – they refuse to play songs from this era live.
