In support of their newly released sophomore album, This Is All Yours, indie rockers Alt-J recently stopped by BBC1’s Live Lounge for an in-studio performance. During the hour-long session, the band unfurled a brand new cover of Disclosure’s “Latch”.
Here, Alt-J gives the Sam Smith-assisted radio smash a subdued and fairly bizarre rendition. With a drum machine beat and wobbly synths, lead vocalist Joe Newman slightly changes the melody (all while reading the song’s lyrics), unable to throw his voice around with the deftness of Smith. Despite some not-quite-there harmonies, it’s still an intriguing listen and a refreshing take on a track that appears to be everywhere.
