Watch Emma Louise’s Emotional Nick Cave Cover For ‘Like A Version’

Aussie singer-songwriter Emma Louise has given a heartfelt and feels-evoking cover of Nick Cave‘s 1997 track Into My Arms.

Louise dropped by the triple j studios for the weekly Like A Version covers segment, where she performed both an original and a cover.

Cave’s music is often pretty emotive and evocative on its own, but Louise took it to another level with her incredible take on Into My Arms, her voice steeped in gut-wrenching emotion.

She was backed by a sizeable band which included special guest Yeo, and behind her keys and vocals there was a mixer, guitar, drums and electric double bass.

Following the cover she performed a stripped-back version of her own tune Illuminate (taken from her 2016 album Supercry) on which Yeo took on keyboard duties and backup vocals, while Louise played guitar.

Watch both performances, below.
