The song, which the band say is one of their favourite Blink songs “of all time”, has been stripped back to its barest melodies, with frontwoman Hannah Joy singing over the top.
“We don’t play covers in our live set, but we are interested in the infinite discovery of what makes a ‘great’ song,” the band tell KCRW.
“In this recording, we were attempting to re-imagine a pop-punk classic as a sad country ballad. We kept the beautiful words and the melody, but changed instrumentation to bring out different emotion.”
Middle Kids have previously blown our minds with their covers of songs like Crowded House’s ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ and Car Seat Headrest’s ‘Fill In The Blank’. The band released their debut EP earlier this year.
