GANG of YOUTHS – ” Why Does It Always Rain On Me? ” Travis Cover

Posted: August 5, 2022 in MUSIC

Joined by a lush string section, the group covered ‘Why Does It Always Rain On Me?’ – the breakthrough 1999 single for Scottish band Travis. Frontman Dave Le’aupepe says he remembers first hearing the “timeless, beautiful song” on rage as a kid.

Having covered The Middle East and LCD Soundsystem in the Like A Version studio before, this time, Dave joked Gang of Youths wanted to lean into their “adult contemporary, Bridget Jones, London-era vibe.”

Le’aupepe also gave us an emotive performance of original “Angel in Realtime”. track ‘brothers’, which we’ve called “a stunning, piano-and-voice centrepiece that allows a much-needed moment of quiet amid the grand epics.”

Like A Version is a segment on Australian radio station triple j. Every week a musician or band performs one of their own songs and cover a song they love.
