The Preatures cover Arcade Fire’s “Everything Now” for triple j’s Like a Version: Watch

on October 26, 2017, 11:50pm


This summer, Aussie rockers The Preatures returned with Girlhood, the follow-up to their excellent debut album, Blue Planet Eyes. To promote the release, the CoSigned band stopped by the triple j studios to participate in the radio station’s Like a Version series.

For their performance, The Preatures chose to cover Arcade Fire’s “Everything Now”, the title track from the Canadian indie rocker’s most recent album. The Preatures made the song their own by eschewing the strings from the original and relying less on on synths, all while leaning on Jack Moffitt’s driving guitar to propel the song forward. Replay it in full up top.

The Preatures are currently touring Australia behind Girlhood, including a concert with Foo Fighters. Find the complete schedule below.
