So, here at Mojo20, we love love LOVE the ‘Like A Version’ segment on Australian radio station; Triple J. Last year, we chose some of our favourite covers to have been performed in the studio which you can check out right here.
The latest band to take on a cover of a song they love is Oxford four-piece, Glass Animals. They’re a great band and you can check out our review of their debut album How To Be A Human Being here.
Anyhow, back to the cover…
Crazy is an absolute fucking tune. I can’t say I’m necessarily a fan of Gnarls Barkley but whenever I hear this track, I HAVE to listen to it in full. It’s catchy, the tempo is spot on and it just makes me feel good. It’s hard to explain. Then Glass Animals come along and cover it. They’ve took it, made it their own and absolutely smashed it. The guitar riff 1:23 in is just…sexy. Music boner inducing. It’s just brilliant and that’s really all I want to say about it!
