Watch Bad//Dreems Take On The Weekend’s ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ For Like A Version

Adelaide rocker Bad//Dreems took to the triple j studios this morning delivering a bare-boned rendition of The Weeknd‘s mammoth hit Can’t Feel My Face for the station’s weekly Like A Version segment.

The band’s organic rock style is miles away from The Weeknd’s dark brand of R&B but they took the song completely into their own lane. They transformed the track into a raucous, raw rock track breathing new, unexpected life into it.

The Preatures frontwoman Izzy Manfredi was also along for the ride calling Bad//Dreems her “favourite band in Australia at the moment,” and then adding backing vocals to Can’t Feel My Face.

In addition to the cover, the boys nailed a live performance of their own track Cuffed & Collared. Cuffed & Collared is taken from their debut album Dogs At Bay which dropped in August of this year. It’s one of many highlights in a huge year for the band.

Watch Bad//Dreems slam out Cuffed & Collared plus their re-work of The Weeknd’s Can’t Feel My Face below.
