AusTop20 Acoustic Homegrown Homage – Sia Chandelier

Yesterday we were lucky enough to be invited into the FoxFM studios to have a chat with all round nice guys Ben Wasley and Ella Hooper from the Australian Top 20 show.

As well as chewing the fat about our latest single ‘The Empire’, we were asked to bring in our Acoustic guitars and prepare a cover of a recent Australian artist as part of their Homegrown Homage segment. So we thought we’d have a crack at a song called ‘Chandelier’, by the amazingly talented Sia.

While we didn’t bring any interpretive dance or spandex with us, we did enjoy the challenge of delivering this song in our own style, whilst trying to stay true to the original version’s emotive tone and powerful lyrics. Having figured the parts out individually the night before… we had our one and only run through together, before recording the following take live.

BIG thanks to Blacko for recording us, to Jez for putting the video together and to Ben and Ella for having us on the show. It’s always a good laugh!
