Phantogram Cover Radiohead Horribly


Phantogram take on Radiohead’s “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi” and Facebook users aren’t having it!

Described as “unquestionably an objectively inferior version of the song” and “really disappointing” by just a few of people commenting on Facebook on Phantogram‘s version of Radiohead‘s “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi” from their 2007 album, In Rainbows. Is it really that bad or just meh? Considering the technical ability of Phantogram, I tend to agree that they could have done something other than play it straight. Check out the performance for yourself below via Triple J radio.
