It’s so nice to see your favourite artists finding their chops on another favourite’s track and that is exactly what is happening here as FIDLAR take on Billie Eilish’s track ‘Xanny’ for Triple J.
The California band found themselves down under and in the Triple J studio for the radio station’s epic ‘Like A Version’ segment. The show asks for artists to cover another artist’s track and FIDLAR chose to cover the hypiest artist in all the land, Billie Eilish.
The punks are still hot off the heels of their latest album Almost Free and while touring have found the time (as well as knocking people’s phones out of their hands when aksing for selfies) to listen to Eilish’s Where Do We Go When We Fall Asleep.
FIDLAR didn’t keep it completely true to the original song and sang “I just need a xanny” instead of the original lyrics, “I don’t need a xanny.” Zac also changes “Only one who’s not stoned” to “Only one who got stoned” and, for the second chorus to keep up the drug theme, “Still just drinking canned coke” to “Stayed up doing bad coke.”
