Natural Velvet covers Lungfish's 'Love is Love' for Valentine's Day

Friends Records' post-punk act Natural Velvet dropped a "love letter" to fans over the Valentine's weekend in the form of a cover of Lungfish song 'Love is Love.' Natural Velvet departed from the post-hardcore Baltimore band's original version, delivering instead a screeching, early-punk sound. Check it out below. Natural Velvet plays live at The Crown on Feb. 27 with Hollywood Blanks, Dirt Queen, DaikonDaikon, and Alain Ginsberg.
