Yeo Nails Japanese Wallpaper Cover & Keytar Solo For Like A Version

Yeo Like A Version

It’s that time of the week again where we get treated to some serious heat thanks to the people over at triple j. Melbourne-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Yeo graced this morning’s Like A Version, flexing his skills with a live version of his track Icarus, and an incredible cover of Japanese Wallpaper’s Forces.

Presenting a much darker and more organic interpretation of Forces, Yeo rocked the keytar, yes you read correctly, the keytar! Joined only by a drummer on the side, he stayed true to this stripped back sound all the while keeping the cover upbeat and totally jammable.

The first half of the cover features a beautiful blend of classic piano chords entangled with ambient electronic sounds accented with a deep, hard hitting sub bass. And let’s not forget Yeo’s raspy and down to earth voice too; his tone just gently guides you through the track so calmly.

Just as you thought it couldn’t get any better, Yeo totally switches it up, swapping out that piano to a gritty 80s synth, busting an absolutely massive keytar solo that will leave you absolutely awestruck. All praise Yeo the keytar god!

Watch the video below and let us know what you think, but if you’ve caught the Yeo bug and are left wanting more, checkout our gallery from his mind-blowing show at The Foundry last month HERE.
