A new song/download from Passenger Peru’s self-titled album will be released next week, but today we bring you something a little different.
“More Than This” is British art rock band Roxy Music‘s 1982 hit single that Justin Gonzales has always been fond of. In this new cover from Passenger Peru, Gonzales wanted to “bring out the ambient qualities of the song and blow it out of proportion” and masterminded a warm, slow crawling trip through swirls of galactic noise, layered shoegaze vocals, and clusters of experimental sounds that float in a different universe than the original.

To go along with this beautiful cover song, Justin Stivers shot a quick DIY video for “Health System” off the self-titled album that shows him and his wife journeying from Hoboken, NJ to an undisclosed location in Queens, NY to jam with his buddy and bandmate that shares the same name.
