Northlane have put their own twist on ‘Tame Impala‘s ‘Let It Happen’. Check out the cover below.
Speaking about how and why the band decided to do the cover (no, it’s not just cos they’re also Australian), uitarist Josh Smith explains: “We’d been wanting to do a cover for quite some time but because we all listen to fairly different music, we could never come to any sort of conclusion about what artist or song to choose when the conversation came up.
“Then one day Jon (Deiley) came to a rehearsal with the first minute of this as a rough demo on his phone to show us and it clicked. Tame Impala might seem an odd choice for a cover from us, but it’s a band that has a fairly similar writing process, and a few common threads within their music and lyrics.
“We were planning to record this cover during our live session at BBC Maida Vale the day of our show in London, UK earlier this month. Unfortunately we ran out of time quickly in the studio as we had to head out early to play the show. We’d already worked on developing this song and rehearsing it and didn’t want that to go to waste, so we chose to do our best to polish up the demo on a laptop while we’re out here on the road in Europe. After this ordeal we’re glad this cut can finally see the light of day, enjoy!”
