Yeule Covers Canadian Classic 'Anthems for a Seventeen Year-Old Girl' for New A24 Movie Soundtrack

The Singaporean musician puts a shoegaze spin on the Broken Social Scene song, featured on the soundtrack for the upcoming movie 'I Saw The TV Glow.' The soundtrack features a slew of indie heavyweights, including Canadian artist The Weather Station, as well as Caroline Polachek, Bartees Strange and Phoebe Bridgers.

Today, Singaporean artist Yeule releases a brand new take on Broken Social Scene's iconic 2003 indie rock song, "Anthems for a Seventeen Year-Old Girl."

The cover comes from the soundtrack for the upcoming A24 movie, I Saw The TV Glow, directed by Jane Schoenbrun. The soundtrack features a stacked list of indie artists, including Phoebe Bridgers, Caroline Polachek, Bartees Strange and Toronto singer-songwriter The Weather Station. Bridgers also reportedly makes an appearance in the anticipated horror-thriller, which had a well-received premiere at Sundance in January, as do Snail Mail's Lindsey Jordan and Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst.


Yeule's cover is a preview of that promising soundtrack, and it delivers a fresh version of a Canadian classic. Yeule's signature style, demonstrated on last year's acclaimed full-length Softscars, brings together glitchy electronics, big pop feelings and heavy shoegaze textures. Their version of "Anthems" keeps the wistful angst of the original, while adding to it with stuttering vocal samples and a hard-hitting fuzz guitar that drops in halfway through.

The film is set for release on May 3, followed by the soundtrack release on May 10.
