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.
