Like A Version is a segment on Australian radio station triple j. Every Friday morning a musician or band comes into the studio to play one of their own songs and a cover of a song they love.

Norway’s Sløtface have been kicking goals all over the place lately. Fresh from performing a number of killer gigs on their debut tour, the group found time to drop into triple j’s studios to deliver an absolutely awesome cover of Lorde’s ‘Supercut’. Ducking into the triple j studios to help promote their debut record, Try Not To Freak Out, which is released next week, the Norwegians first delivered a blistering run-through of their track ‘Magazine’, before turning their attention to our Kiwi neighbours.

Stripping away the rippling synths, and layered vocals of Lorde’s original, Sløtface’s Haley Shea delivers the track’s lyrics with pure pop-punk conviction, while the rest of the group dutifully re-imagine the track with some typically brilliant punk-rock instrumental.


Of course, this isn’t the first time that Like A Version has delivered the goods this year, with Maggie Rogers recently giving us a sublime performance of The xx’s ‘Say Something Loving’, while Something For Kate’s Paul Dempsey dropped into the studios back in May for an astonishing cover of Middle Kids’ ‘Edge Of Town’.

Make sure you catch Sløtface soon while they were in the country, the group’s debut record, Try Not To Freak Out, is set for release on Friday, September 15th. So be sure to grab a copy and support some brilliant musicians doing what they love.
