FIDLAR's take on Billie Eilish's 'xanny' is 300% more FIDLAR-y

You might not think it at first, but given a degree of contemplation, FIDLAR laying down a cover of Billie Eilish makes perfect sense.

Laying down a take on the pop prodigy's 'xanny' in session for Aussie radio station triple j's famed Like A Version strand, the woozy, punk drunk cover makes an oh-so-FIDLAR lyric swap, changing "I don't need a xanny" to the far more Zac-Carper-on-brand "I just need a xanny".

It's not the only change, either. FIDLAR's 'xanny' is far, far more wasted than our Billie's.

With their latest album 'Almost Free' released earlier this year, you can check out their cover below.
