Ladyhawke, “White Rabbit”
(Triple J’s Like a Version)
Casting aside the 80’s synths for a moment, Ladyhawke pulled off a slick version of Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit” for Triple J’s Like a Version last Friday.
Keeping the slow bass heartbeat, and updating the keyboards to a low shimmer, Ladyhawke glides her way through a faithful rendition without ever taking the knife to the original. She belts out some blinders at the end, although the pipes of Grace Slick can never be truly matched.
