I’m talking to you, VIDEO/SINGLE: TROPE have Tears For Fears’ SHOUT covered
Trope – Shout is available at Apple Music.
by Walter Price
The much-ballyhooed cover of Tears For Fears’ ’84 pop-rock opus “Shout”, by LA’s Trope, is a modern rock stunner. Replacing much of the original’s of-the-time new wave sensibilities that soundtracked my university years with killer 90’s era alt-rock bass and drums and vocalist Diana Studenberg’s Dolores O’Riordan-esque vibe will, undoubtedly, twíst you into a whole new appreciation of this classic. As most covers come and go, this one will fuel your summer playlists for years in perpetuity.
If you’re a fan of Evanescence, Paramore, and/or Cranberries this track will rock you. And you can check out the video, directed by Stewart Whelan, below.

“How many of us have been in situations where we’re mistreated and looked down on by people who just don’t recognize our value? I believe, in life, we shouldn’t have to placate or put on a clown face and do a fucking happy dance to appease people who behave toxically towards us and lack the foresight to really see who’s in front of them. I see this whole song as a reaffirmation of value and strength and of our ability to move past these situations and people and towards the things that help elevate us emotionally and spiritually.” – Diana Studenberg
