Pet Shop Boys "Rent" x I Am A Camera

A sassy little cover of the Pet Shop Boys 1987 hit "Rent' popped up in my inbox today, courtesy of Francesca Ross and Ian Watt, aka I Am A Camera. The duo stamp their moody synth-pop vibe and dark vocals all over the 80s mid-tempo song with the unforgettable chorus, "I love you, you pay my rent". 

Singer Neil Tennant once said the lyrics were imagined to be about a Kennedy-esque politician and his secret lover, whom he kept hidden in a fancy Manhattan flat - and there you were just thinking it was about a kept rent boy?

Listen to I Am A Camera's stirring and sinister take below.
