Watch: Watch Wolf Alice mash up Charli XCX’s ‘Boys’ and The Cure’s ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ for triple j

Returning the favour after Charli covered ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’ on the same station.

Last year, Charli XCX headed to Australian radio station triple j and penned a cover of Wolf Alice’s ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’ for the station’s long-running Like A Version feature.

Over in the country for Laneway Festival this month, Wolf Alice have now returned the favour. The four-piece played their own version of ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’, before taking on a cover of Charli’s classic ‘Boys’.

Not only that, but they interspersed the synth line from The Cure’s ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ too, and it’s pretty bloody brilliant if we’re honest.

After the Like A Version cover, Charli shared a proper remix version of ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’ alongside Post Precious.

Watch the triple j performances below, and catch up with our September 2017 cover feature with Wolf Alice here.
