Judicator presents “Mandy,” a cover of Barry Manilow’s “Mandy” (1974) which is actually a cover of Scott English & Richard Kerr’s “Brandy” (1971), except Judicator’s “Mandy” is in the style of Panos Cosmatos’ ‘Mandy’ (2018). Are your heads spinning yet??

Vocalist John Yelland states: “For years now I’ve been in love with the idea of doing a cover of ‘Mandy,’ but with a vibe that gives a very deliberate nod to Panos Cosmatos’ 2018 film of the same name. I arranged the song in such a way that, I believe, captures the majesty of Manilow’s rendition, but also the frenzied focus of Nicolas Cage. ‘Mandy’ was recorded during the same sessions as our new album, so this is the production and sound you can expect.”
