We loves a ’90s revival Like A Version and Hands Like Houses have delivered the goods. Taking on the ’90s classic ‘Shimmer’ by Fuel, they up the instrumentals a little bit, the vocals are a touch more polished, and they bring some serious energy to the cover.
As well as the glorious ‘Shimmer’ cover, Hands Like Houses delivered their own ‘The Water’. It’s a tight performance of their most recent single, obviously besides today’s newie ‘Dangerous’.
Hands Like Houses’ ‘Shimmer’ isn’t their first ’90s hit rendezvous on the segment. Back in 2016, we received a cover of No Doubt’s ‘Don’t Speak’
In their Behind The Like A Version, they recall how special watching the ‘Shimmer’ clip on Rage was back in the day.
They chat about how Like A Version is good because you can do a cover that’s exactly the same or one that’s totally different, and either will work.
Hands Like Houses frontman Trenton Woodley says, “It’s kind of like just bringing a flavour rather than changing the recipe.”
We’ll be receiving a new Hands Like Houses EP next month. The self-titled release is due Friday, 23rd October and their latest single ‘Dangerous’ is out today.
