Wolf Alice performed a cover of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s ‘Sense’ on triple j’s Like a Version. Watch it below.
‘Sense’ is taken from the 2015 album Paper Mâché Dream Balloon. “It’s a beautiful song. It’s quite different from a lot of their other stuff. It kind of feels like an old, classic song, doesn’t it?” lead singer Ellie Roswell said ahead of the performance. “We’ve met them a couple of times at festivals and they always put on a great show.”
Bassist Theo Ellis added: “I think they’re such a prolific band and so talented that they can have these hidden pop gems, in my opinion, that it’s really clever. If you put that in a different style of production and had a modern pop star singing it, I think it would be a chart hit. I think exploring that is one of the funnest aspects of doing this cover.”
Just yesterday, Wolf Alice announced their Blue Lullaby EP, featuring lullaby renditions of songs from their latest album Blue Weekend.
