Pendulum cover Taylor Swift ‘Anti Hero’: Watch
Pendulum recently paid homage to Taylor Swift’s ‘Anti-Hero’ during a live session for Triple J’s ‘Like A Version’ series in Australia.
In a playful nod to Taylor Swift’s fandom, Pendulum affectionately referred to themselves as “Swifties.” Rob Swire of Pendulum humorously commented, “We just felt like she needed a little more exposure, maybe a hand in selling some tour tickets. We decided to experiment with a variety of drum and bass tempos, and it just clicked with that rhythm.”
Gareth McGrillen added, “She’s undeniably talented, and we thought she could use a boost down under.”
In addition to their tribute to Taylor Swift, The band treated the audience to a captivating rendition of their recent single ‘Colorfast,’ which is part of their EP ‘Anima,’ set to launch on Friday, November 3rd.
