Feels Like We Only Go Backwards

Listen: Say Lou Lou release amazing cover of Tame Impala’s ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards’

Tame Impala’s Lonerism highlight ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards‘ is one of those very rare songs that already feels like a timeless classic – so naturally it has attracted quite a lot of remixes and reworkings over the past few months.

Some of the remixes have been quite good, but this new one from Australian-Swedish sisters Say Lou Lou is hands-down the best I’ve heard. Check it out:

Describing their cover version, Say Lou Lou said:

“Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” is really enthralling, it’s like there are several different worlds inside one song. How it feels like a simple rock song (with almost pop melodies) but with a field of colour bursts of warm layered instrumentation that re-invents itself throughout the whole song… but it wasn’t until we started making our own version that we discovered how beautiful the lyrics are – another world in itself – so we decided to strip the groove back and take it into another place.
