“Hot For Teacher” is a classic that deserves only the beat treatment, and this electro rock duo made it happen. This synthy Van Halen cover chugs along with energy from across a generation and stops at nothing to revive the old vibes. Listen below.

On the new single, the duo write, “There was a time in our boyhood when bands like Van Halen and Def Leppard permeated the contemporary alternative rock sphere – a comeback you could call it. It’s easy to fall in love with those bands as a kid because along with all their ‘badass’ hard rock qualities, the songs are also fun and naive, almost silly at times (ie the schoolboy chatter in the beginning of Hot For Teacher). There’s still a part of us that craves that combination, and recently we were given a chance to indulge. A friend of ours asked us to play his girlfriend’s surprise birthday party, so we prepared a dance version of a song she really loved. It was so much fun (and they got engaged that night), so the song stuck.”
