Last week Arctic Monkeys stopped by Australian radio station Triple J and participated in the station’s famed Like A Version segment, where bands cover a song of their choice. Arctic Monkeys (Alex & Matt) were up and took on Tame Impala’s “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards.”
It’s an acoustic cover, tackled solely by Turner. Hearing him play it with his British accent gives the song a really pretty feel. I may be biased, but I think he really did the song justice, and then some. The first part of the video clip also features a fun bit.
They also performed “Do I Wanna Know”, where Helders adds his vocals as well as some tambourine. Helder also admits his favorite cover of “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” is Miley Cyrus’.
Find both performances posted below.
