Scottish synthpop band, CHVRCHES, have spent the last year going from Glasgow clubs to playing around the world.
Lead singer Lauren Mayberry’s shimmery-soft voice has wooed many and it does well on the Arctic Monkeys‘ sexed-up single, “Do I Wanna Know?”
The trio covered the song for an Australian radio station and re-worked the song into something a lot more laidback and earnest than like a sonic booty call.
In an interview they called their cover a “departure” and apologized to Arctic Monkeys if the song sounded so different. But that’s the point of a cover song, right?
Listen to their version below.
