Traffic Light Covers Teenage Fanclub: “I Don’t Want Control Of You”

I guess this is the week lots of folks in Japan decided to make acoustic covers. Yesterday, three loveable people turned Perfume’s “Laser Beam” into a guitar-powered slice of cuteness, and today indie-pop outfit Traffic Light tackled Teenage Fanclub’s “I Don’t Want Control Of You.” The Scottish group’s 1997 single proves to be right up Traffic Light’s alley, though, as the Tokyo band just remove everything but the acoustic guitar and go to work. This take is also a step slower than the original – watch the Teenage Fanclub version here, by the way – but ultimately not that huge a diversion. Unlike, say, turning a technopop song into a campfire sing-a-long. Listen below.
