Be warned; your heart is going to completely fall out of your ass this morning, because Yungblud and Halsey have laid down a goosebump-inducing rendition of Death Cab For Cutie‘s ‘I Will Follow You Into The Dark‘ for this week’s Like A Version. Yes, mates, we’re sitting on the second week of Very Good Covers, here.
Stopping by the Triple J studios while Yungblud (aka Dominic Harrison) was in the country for a run of festivals and sold out headline shows, and Halsey was in the country for…Valentine’s Day (??) and to surprise fans when the pair’s new single dropped, the took a moment to sit in together and put down a frankly adorable version of the king of all emo love songs.
With multi-instrumentalist Dom tinkling away on the piano, Halsey by his side, and a small section of strings (fuckin’ STRINGS) joining in, the cover of the one song that’s on literally every emo darling’s mix cd to their crush for the last 14 years.
It’s not often that we get absolutely blessed with two stellar Like A Version performances in a row, and honestly after Denzel Curry absolutely wiped the floor of the ABC offices with his powerful cover of Rage Against The Machine‘s ‘Bulls On Parade‘ last week, but here we are. Happy fuckin’ Friday, you lot.
Check out the video below and be prepared to feel ALL OF YOUR FEELINGS ALL AT ONCE.
These two harmonise so bloody well, it’s incredible. Cancel today, I’m going back to bed and listening to this on repeat. Cya.
