The Sydney-based band were joined by Jerome Farah and Milan Ring for the cover, which aired today (October 21). They’ve given Doja’s hit an instrumental makeover with added Winston Surfshirt flair. The band’s rendition incorporates slinky brass and laidback vocals, with their distinct mellow sound met with the dulcet tones of Farah and Ring on backup vocals.
“When I first heard [Doja’s song], I was obsessed with it and it was all I listened to,” the band’s titular frontman, Winston, said in a post-performance interview. “It felt like something I wish I’d written, but I couldn’t write – so we did it for Like A Version.”

The outfit also performed their own original song, opting for their latest cut ‘Of Another Kind’. Released in August, the cut also features Farah and Ring, who stayed in the triple j studio for the performance. Check it out below.
