SAFIA – ‘Left Hand Free’ (alt-j cover)

SAFIA have turned alt-J’s ‘Left Hand Free’ into a slow-burning ballad for triple j’s Like A Version this morning.

As well as making over the big rock moment from alt-j’s acclaimed second album This is All Yours, the Canberra trio performed a Led Zeppelin-inspired version of their own song “Counting Sheep”.

After wrapping up ‘Counting Sheep’ launch shows this week, SAFIA have been locked in to perform at Spain’s Primavera Sound festival, the Great Escape in the UK and Splendour in the Grass back home in July. alt-j kick off their Australian tour, with Ásgeir and Mansionair supporting, in Brisbane tonight.
