Watch Phoebe Bridgers, beabadoobee, Clairo, Rina Sawayama & more cover The 1975
While we wait for The 1975's highly anticipated new album Notes on a Conditional Form, artists including Phoebe Bridgers (who appears on the album), beabadoobee (who, along with Phoebe, was supposed to be on tour with The 1975 now), Rina Sawayama, Pale Waves, Clairo, Cavetown, and Gracie Adams, did a special virtual tribute to the band on The Face Magazine's Instagram. If you missed the livestream as it was happening, or you want to relieve the covers, they've been uploaded to Youtube, and you can watch them below. They include Phoebe Bridgers' take on "Girls" from The 1975's self-titled debut, which transforms the bouncy pop song into stark folk; Clairo's cover of "Robbers," beabadoobee's cover of "Medicine," Rina Sawayama's cover of "Love It If We Made It," and more. Watch below.
This was done in conjunction with The 1975 singer Matty Healy's podcast for The Face, for which he interviewed Brian Eno, Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth), Steve Reich, Mike Kinsella (American Football) (who also covered The 1975 recently), Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream), Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), and Stevie Nicks.
For more 1975, we posted a great full-set video of them from earlier this year in London, during which they played a handful of songs from the upcoming album.
For more Phoebe Bridgers, we just realized her old band Buster's 2014 EP is on Bandcamp. She also contributed to the new Christian Lee Hutson song/video that came out today.
