Vera and her band played a largely faithful rendition of the song, with slightly stripped back instrumentation that let Vera’s incredible vocals shine. And do they, ever.
The 20-year-old Vera Blue has released a couple of singles, Hold and Settle, in the process of creating her first EP. The stirring Hold, which she also performed this morning for triple j, was nominated for triple j’s Hottest 100 in 2015 and reached #148.
If Vera’s work so far and this performance are anything to go by, we can only anticipate the wonders on Vera’s EP when it finally drops. Check out the amazing performances below.
