It’s not the cover you’d expect from DeMarco though as he decided to abandon the frontman position and head for the drums.
He traded spots with drummer Joe McMurray for the performance and he treated it a little like karaoke. He still needs to work a bit on that Yorke falsetto before he can truly nail the track. Still, the audience lapped it up singing along to every word of the song.
They also covered Red Hot Chili Peppers ‘Under The Bridge’ with McMurray up front. He told the crowd, “I can’t really sing the song,” but he gave it a shot anyway.
DeMarco was in the country earlier this year for Laneway Festival off the back of his 2017 record This Old Dog. Unfortunately we weren’t treated to any Radiohead covers.
Thankfully, the Lollapalooza festival was filmed so you can watch them below.
