With their cover of Mad World, Me And My nightmare are able to ramp up the pop approach while keeping the bleakness of the original. The vocals bring in hints of Madonna and Shirley Manson while the backing instrumentation adopt equal amounts of industrial and EDM. What results is a version of this modern classic that is purely Me And My Nightmare’s own. Ample synths and sequenced percussion sweep over the vocals during the single’s last minute, giving a boost to the final notes heard here. Me And My Nightmare are at a higher level after their release of Mad World.
