Watch Noah Dillon cover HAIM’s ‘The Wire’ for Like a Version

He also performed 'Alive and Kicking' from his EP 'Don't Change For The World (Like It's Changing Me)'

Perth’s Noah Dillon is the latest artist to take part in triple j’s Like a Version, covering HAIM‘s ‘The Wire’ for the segment.

Dillon was backed by a drummer, bassist, guitarist and violinist/keyboardist/backup vocalist for the rendition, putting their own spin on the song with a heavier bridge and slower pre-choruses.

Speaking about the cover in a post-performance interview, Dillon said “I just love HAIM as a band”.


“I think they sort of encapsulate everything I love about songwriting, where it feels like someone’s sort of being honest and expressing themselves in a really unique way.

“Particularly this song, I think I heard it a few years ago and just had it as a shower song for the last three years, so I woke up to it most mornings.”

Dillon also performed an original song, opting for ‘Alive and Kicking’ from his recent EP ‘Don’t Change For The World (Like It’s Changing Me)’. Watch that below too.
