It was about a month ago that I discussed the first single from the brand new Steve ‘n’ Seagulls album “Brothers In Farms” with their cover of Iron Maiden’s seminal track “Aces High” and since the band has dished out another one for public consumption I figured I might as well do the same thing for that one. This time around the song is “Self Esteem” that was originally done by The Offspring. Let’s go.
Hearing a Hillbillified rendition of the Power Punk icons The Offspring’s “Self Esteem” was quite a hoot and it’s so rousing that it might inspire some square dancing in your respective living rooms. Folks who remember the original track might recall how it’s about a dude who is on the pathetic side and is singing about being used by someone he loves and while that tune rocked hard for sure it was still a little sad. With the SNS rendition you feel like spinning your partner do-se-do. I loved it and am looking forward to the brand-new album which comes out in a couple of weeks based on this narrative. I don’t think that snagging this single is necessary right now unless you MUST have it and I say that with the full one coming out so soon. Your choice but this was a really good number and makes me more firm about catching them in concert sometime in the future.
