Arctic Monkeys – ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards’ (Tame Impala Cover)

I’m biased, but can they do no wrong? With this cover of Tame Impala’s ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards’ from their 2012 dream-boat ‘Lonerism’, Matt Helders is once again left lurking and smirking in the background – but when the result is this, we can forgive the autonomous state that is Mr Alex Turner. With this interpretation the bryl-creamed crooner strikes again, exchanging the psychedelia for his trusty acoustic to reveal Parker’s aching sentiment like an excitable English teacher handed a Kerouac. It’s only a shame they didn’t roll this out for the class en-masse when performing together at their Finsbury Park mega-gig.
