A ton of people — HAIM, Angel Haze, London Grammar, Sondre Lerche — have covered Miley Cyrus’s world-beating tearjerker “Wrecking Ball,” and there’s a reason for that; it’s a fucking great song. Our latest “Wrecking Ball” interpreters are British art-rockers Wild Beasts, who did a trebley acoustic version of the song while they were doing an in-store set at New York’s Other Music on Monday. They played it for laughs, which is a bit annoying, but they’re still good singers, and it’s still a great song. Watch it below.
Wild Beasts’ new album Present Tense is out now on Domino.
