The 18-year-old also covered St Vincent’s 2014 single ‘Digital Witness’ as part of Rookie’s ‘Theme Song’ series.

Speaking about the cover, Monds-Watson said: “I just really like her. She’s cool. I listened to her at Electric Picnic, which is a festival in Ireland, but I didn’t really get into her until later on. She’s really good and kind of weird. I like music that’s entertaining and you can’t tell what the next line is gonna be. She just makes things that are really interesting, and you can hear something new each time you listen. It’s really well-textured.”
