June 23 — The Soviet Machines debuted the video for its take of David Bowie’s modern classic song, ‘I’m Afraid Of Americans‘ this month.
The band premiered the video June 3. The video features the band taking on the song, which Bowie originally composed alongside Brian Eno in 1995 for Bowie’s album, Outside and then re-worked and featured as part of his 1997 album, Earthling.
The Soviet Machines’ rendition of the song stays largely true to its source material. However, in place of the industrial leaning of the original song, the band gives the song more of a grunge leaning while still trying to recreate the ambiance of the original in its stylistic approach and sound.
The debut of the band’s new video and cover came more than two years after the band released its debut self-titled album through DC-Jam Records.
