US indie outfit Grouplove are in the country at the moment for a string of shows, and they’ve used an appearance on triple j‘s Like A Version segment to cover local party boys Dune Rats, even pulling a shoey in the process.
In one of the most surprising Like A Version covers of 2016, Grouplove decided to throw down their own version of Dune Rats’ Bullshit, complete with acoustic guitars and, well, that shoey.
When asked by triple j ‘Breakfast’ hosts Matt Okine and Alex Dyson how they ended up choosing Dune Rats as a band to cover, singer Hannah Hooper replied, “I consider us just locals at this point. The song was so catchy right when we heard it, so we decided to change it. And change it they did, slowing down and stripping back the track to its bare bones, with layered acoustic guitars and some gorgeous harmonised vocals.”
While in the triple j studios, Grouplove also performed their massive hit Welcome To Your Life, which appears on their new album Big Mess, which is out on Friday, 9th September. Catch the band’s Like A Version performances (and shoey), below.
