Watch: CHVRCHES Cover Arctic Monkeys

'Do I Wanna Know?' gets re-worked

Arctic Monkeys are steeped in classic songwriting.

It's a measure of their success that the band can combine such localised slang, such acute references and gain a huge global audience - all through the power of their craft.

So it's perhaps surprising that more groups don't cover the Sheffield band's material. Invited to take part in Triple J's ever-essential Like A Version series, CHVRCHES opted to tackle the frozen simians.

'Do I Wanna Know?' is re-cast as a moody electro-pop hymn, with Lauren Mayberry turning the lyrics on their head.

Check it out now.

CHVRCHES are no strangers to the cover routine - the band recently tackled 'Bela Lugosi's Dead' for 'The Vampire Academy'.
