Sure, we all know indie pop artist Daniel Lee Kendall can melt a heart but today the Bensville musician proved he can also get your pulse racing with his sultry take on Michael Jackson’s Rock With You for the latest installment of triple j’s Like A Version.
DLK implements scant beats, via a drum machine, in his vocally-driven rendition of the MJ classic. The King Of Pop was never lacking in swagger and Kendall retains Jackson’s groovy pop melody while adding a level of intimacy to lyrics like, “Out on the floor there ain’t nobody there but us”.
For the original track, Kendall performed his latest single Under A Spell, the music video for which premiered on Music Feeds last month. Kendall’s debut album Daniel Lee Kendall Is Dead is out today with his national tour in November. Check out the dates here.
