Northlane cover Tame Impala’s ‘Let It Happen’

By Ben Tipple


Australian five-piece Northlane have posted a cover of ‘Let It Happen’ by unlikely suspects Tame Impala. The cover was recorded during their current European stint, which has seen them sell out shows in the UK, France and Germany.

Northlane are touring in support of recent full-length, ‘Node’, before returning to their nature Australia for a November tour and stop off at Soundwave Festival in January.

“We’d been wanting to do a cover for quite some time but because we all listen to fairly different music, we could never come to any sort of conclusion about what artist or song to choose when the conversation came up,” guitarist Josh Smith explains. “Then one day Jon came to a rehearsal with the first minute of this as a rough demo on his phone to show us and it clicked. Tame Impala might seem an odd choice for a cover from us, but it’s a band that has a fairly similar writing process, and a few common threads within their music and lyrics.”

“We were planning to record this cover during our live session at BBC Maida Vale the day of our show in London, UK earlier this month. Unfortunately we ran out of time quickly in the studio as we had to head out early to play the show. We’d already worked on developing this song and rehearsing it and didn’t want that to go to waste, so we chose to do our best to polish up the demo on a laptop while we’re out here on the road in Europe. After this ordeal we’re glad this cut can finally see the light of day, enjoy!”
