This week, BBC’s Live Lounge has played host to more than one unexpected performance. Yesterday, we saw FKA Twigs take on, and expertly nail, a left-field cover of Sia’s “Elastic Heart”. Now, Matt Bellamy and his Muse cohorts have chosen to put their own spin on “Lies”, a track taken from CHVRCHES’s excellent debut album, The Bones of What You Believe.
It’s a surprising pick to be sure, but the original seethes with a certain kind of devilishness similar to the dooming alt rock edge “thing” that Muse has been trying to peddle all these years. Check it out below.
Revisit the original for comparison.
