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.
