Portishead’s Beth Gibbons Sings Joy Division and David Bowie With the Miraculous Love Kids: Watch

August 16th, 2023 | by Nick

Portishead’s Beth Gibbons sings lead vocals on a new song with Afghanistan’s the Miraculous Love Kids, “Atmosphere/Heroes,” which blends the Joy Division and David Bowie songs. The release marks two years since the Taliban regained control of Afghanistan, severely limiting women’s rights and freedoms. The young women in Miraculous Love Kids subsequently fled Kabul, Afghanistan, for Islamibad, Pakistan, with their families, forming the band alongside American musician and activist Lanny Cordola. Watch the video above.

Gibbons said in a press release, “I was so honoured to guest on the Miraculous Love Kids’ reconstructed cover track  ‘Atmosphere/Heroes,’ and to be a voice next to these brave and beautiful girls of Afghanistan.”
