Pelican have shared a cover of Karate’s “Gasoline” as part of Numero Group’s ongoing series of archival reimaginings, and the usually-instrumental band recruited Pinebender’s Chris Hansen for lead vocals.
“We’re all huge fans of Numero, so when they asked us if we’d cover music from their extensive catalog we were beyond honored,” Pelican said in a statement (via Revolver). “Karate’s ‘Gasoline’ emerged as a superb vehicle for lifting the curtain on the emo-adjacent influences that been foundational to our music.”
About Chris’ vocals, the band adds, “The timbre of his voice seems particularly dialed in for this material and we couldn’t be more stoked with how it turned out.”
