Watch Arctic Monkeys Cover Tame Impala
One of our favorite bands, Arctic Monkeys, have done it again, this time with a stellar cover of Tame Impala‘s ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards.’ You can watch an acoustic version of the song above, performed by Monkeys frontman Alex Turner.
The group was in Australia during its world tour, so Turner stopped by Triple J Radio to chat and lay down the cover song for the program’s Like a Version segment, where artists cover their favorite songs.
Even though cover songs can turn into total nightmares in the wrong hands, Arctic Monkeys seem to have a knack for it. They’ve turned in stellar versions of the Beatles‘ ‘All My Loving’ recently, as well as Drake‘s ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home,’ which you can see here:
The Monkeys are currently on the road supporting their fifth album, 2013’s ‘AM.’ They’re stopping at London’s Finsbury Park later this month for two sold-out shows, where Tame Impala will actually be opening.
You can check out their original version of the psychedelic ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards’ below.
