Watch Chvrches Cover Arctic Monkeys’ “Do I Wanna Know?”

c60585f10dd11e7ed5a2be59f80f9203 Watch Chvrches Cover Arctic Monkeys’ “Do I Wanna Know?”

Chvrches have become a prolific cover band in between churning out their own immaculate synth-pop songs, and they’ve added to their arsenal with a live take of Arctic Monkeys “Do I Wanna Know?” for triple j’s Like A Version series. They now join the ranks of Idolator faves like Miley Cyrus and Katy B who have recently covered the UK rockers, but this may be our favorite effort.

The Scottish trio transform the gloomy rock strut of the original into a minor key New Wave lament, which eventually builds into a crescendo fit for a John Hughes film as each member toils away on his or her respective keyboards and knobs.

Watch the reinterpretation up top.
