We got you covered...

More Odette More Odette

Odette covers Gang Of Youths - Magnolia

A cover so good, Gang Of Youths have gone on record to say it was better than the original. 2018 was a massive year for this ARIA-nominated breakthrough artist and we think, potentially, this cover had a big part to play in that. 

Ocean Alley cover Player - Baby Come Back

At the time of writing, Warmest Tunas have predicted Ocean Alley to take out the Hottest 100 and we'd say there is a good chance this cover will make the list too. What a song. What a cover.

The Presets cover Midnight Oil - Power & The Passion

It was a big call to cover Aussie legends Midnight Oil and there was a lot of talk as to whether The Presets did the classic justice. Our verdict? The only thing it's missing is more Peter Garrett dance moves. Kudos for the contemporary lyrical update: "Snapchat, pine gap, in every home a smashed av."

Nothing But Thieves cover Gang of Youths - What Can I Do If The Fire Goes Out?

The Gang Of Youths love was real this year but Conor Mason's vocals here have us shooketh. We're not crying, you are.

Wolf Alice cover Charli XCX - Boys

Returning the favour after Charli XCX covered Don't Delete The Kisses the year prior, English indie band Wolf Alice proved why they were given the prestigious Mercury Prize this year. Boys morphs into The Cure's Boys Don't Cry and it's straight out of a '90s teen movie soundtrack. Genius. 

Eves Karydas covers Aretha Franklin - (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman

We lost one of the greats this year. It takes a lot of guts to cover the queen of soul but Eves Karydas dug deep for this silky rendition in a fitting tribute. 

Kwame covers Kendrick Lamar - Alright

What a risk. But DAMN. with this jazzy rendition, it pays off. Kwame shows why he earned the title of triple j's Unearthed Artist Of The Year. Keep an eye on this talented individual in the new year.
