Stream: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. – “God Only Knows”

Being “indie” is all about irony, right? If you believe in that mantra, see my case in point, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. Lovingly named after the NASCAR driver, with a little extra Jr. at the end, one would expect a country vibe to their music. But once again, I fell for their little joke and was shocked to hear beautiful, summery, pop music. One highlight on their EP titled “Horse Power” is a daring cover of The Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows.” It’s a charming rendition, making it sound unique, but still maintaining the innocence and uncertainty of the original. Not an easy task for one of the greatest songs of all time. Stream the track here!

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. will be performing at CMJ this year, and will release their full-length album in the Winter of 2011.
