Watch Alex The Astronaut Pay Tribute To Paul Kelly With A Heartfelt ‘Like A Version’

Written by Emmy Mack on September 1, 2017

Prior to kicking off her big triple j Unearthed showcase at this year’s BIGSOUND festivalAlex The Astronaut has stopped by JHQ to deliver her very first Like A Version.

After busting out her heartfelt new single ‘Not Worth Hiding’ on the J-waves, the Sydney singer-songwriter took the opportunity to tip her helmet to one of her musical heroes, Aussie legend Paul Kelly, by delivering a bare-bones rendition of his 2010 ballad ‘If I Could Start Today Again’.

It’s been met with a resounding thumbs-up from punters online. No bells or whistles, just one girl, one guitar and one great song.

Give both performances a watch below, and check out Alex’s freshly-announced string of national tour dates off the back of her forthcoming See You Soon EP.
