Jagwar Ma cover Arctic Monkeys’ ‘Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?’ – watch

Australian band take on 'AM' track during visit to radio station Band performed 'AM' track for Triple J's Like A Version series

Jagwar Ma have performed a version of Arctic Monkeys‘ ‘Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?’.

The band were in session on Australian radio station Triple J‘s Like A Version series, a segment of Tom Ballard and Alex Dyson’s breakfast show. Their cover is relatively straightforward, although towards the end the version nods to Ace Of Base’s 1993 UK Number One single ‘All That She Wants’.

Last year Jagwar Ma covered Solange’s ‘Losing You’ during a visit to BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge Late. The band released their debut album, ‘Howlin’, in 2013 and will embark on a short tour of the UK in May. The run of dates will kick off in Manchester on May 10, before shows in Leeds and Birmingham and will then wrap up in London on May 14.


Jagwar Ma will play:

Manchester Academy (May 10)
Leeds The Cockpit (11)
Birmingham The Institute (13)
London Brixton Electric (14)
