The Sydney duo opened their cover of the classic track with an a capella rendition of the song’s chorus, before introducing heavy percussion and sultry, Latin-inspired guitars.
In a post-performance interview, Calmell said that the pair opted to perform ‘Maneater’ due to nostalgia.
“We wanted to do a nice throwback song that, as grown women, we can make sexy now!” she said.
“When you were nine years old and singing ‘Maneater’, it was a different vibe,” Cat followed.
Talking about their interpretation of the song, Cat said, “We really love having a big moment and a bit of a build.
“Nelly’s original version is quite sexy the whole way through, and we wanted to start it soft with the A Capella version and keep building and building to that big last chorus.”
Speaking of the EP, the duo said it “encapsulates a time in our lives that was full of a lot of excitement, but also a lot of uncertainty.”
“It’s such a time-stamp of our slightly younger and slightly more reckless days. A lot of the songs on this EP were written a while back, so it’s nice to see where we were and where we came from both in terms of our music and our headspace back then.”
