Sadie Dupuis does a fine line in excellent, and unexpected, cover versions. Whether it’s tackling ‘Pretend To Be Dead’ by Josie & The Pussycats or putting her spin on Ciara’s ‘Ride’, the Speedy Ortiz leader always makes something unique. Her take on Metric singer Emily Haines’ ‘The Last Page’ is similarly individual. Raiding Haines’ criminally underrated 2006 solo album for the track, she has reduced what was already pretty stripped back to it’s most lo-fi of bones, teaming up with Two Inch Astronaut’s Sam Rosenberg for company. Check it out below.
Speedy Ortiz play Bristol on May 21 and London on May 22.
