Inspired by the Like a Versions Triple J do each friday, I bring you another cool cover song, this time by Breaking Hart Benton covering INXS‘s ‘Don’t Change‘.
If somebody said they could play a great INXS cover with just a banjo and acoustic guitar, I would have been pretty skeptical. However, this stripped back take on ‘Don’t Change’ takes nothing away from the original, with the banjo and acoustic guitar blending pretty well together. The banjo in particular really provides such beautiful plucky sounds that I could never have imagined in an INXS song. This cover also seems to deliver a much more heartfelt and warm sound to it, perhaps best shown by the The ‘Don’t Change’ harmonies in the last 30 seconds.
Keep an eye out for Breaking Hart Benton as they continue to work on their own new tunes.
