Better Oblivion Community Center, the folk-band made up of indie luminaries Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst, are currently on their debut tour. Over the weekend, at their Las Vegas show, the pair paid tribute to Las Vegas heroes The Killers’ by delivering a sumptuous cover of their Day & Age track ‘Human.’ It’s truly gorgeous stuff, check out fan-shot footage of the performance below.

It really is a shame that this band did not exist whilst The OC was still running, everything about them is a Seth Cohen wet dream.
In a tweet referencing the performance, renowned meme queen Phoebe Bridgers shared “I think 14 year old me cast a serious fucking spell.” We have to agree.
This isn’t the first time Bridgers has brought us to the brink of tears with a The Killer cover. Back in December, Bridgers supergroup boygenius performed a cover of Sam’s Town cut ‘Read My Mind.’
Back in December, boygenius (the supergroup consisting of Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, and Julien Baker) performed a live cover of another Killers song, “Read My Mind.” If harmonies could kill, we’d all be dead. Check it out below.

Bridgers also released a cover of The Cure’s ‘Friday I’m In Love’ ahead of her Australian tour earlier this year.
