Aussie wonder Alex Lahey was recently a guest on Triple J radio, popping into play a couple of tunes.
Alex decided to spin everything on its head though, delivering two very unexpected renditions of recognisable tunes. For the customary segment Like A Version, she took on Natalie Imbruglia’s iconic hit ‘Torn’, but turned the volume up and delivered a scuzzy, riff-laden version of the tune. It really brought the inner angst out of the tune.
For her second song, she took things back to her recent EP ‘B-Grade University’, airing ‘You Don’t Think You Like People Like Me’. Whereas on record the song is a bold, brash and fuzzy rock number, here she decided to strip it all back, pretty much doing an acoustic version. Without an acoustic guitar mind.
Watch Alex cover ‘Torn’ and play ‘You Don’t Think You Like People Like Me’ below. Catch up with our interview with Alex from last year here.
