Pist Idiots have swung by to highlight some of their favourite covers that they’ve been tagged in or sent from direct message on their Instagram, and just as you’d expect, they’re all phenomenal. The Pisties know what’s up.
Pist Idiots have been making a name for themselves in the Aussie music scene, and in their downtime, you best believe they’re looking at all the covers that fans have made of their music.
Having come to widespread attention back in 2017 with the release of their self-titled EP, the group have gone from strength to strength in the time since, releasing the Princes EP in 2018, performing a hectic Splendour In The Grass set, and releasing their phenomenal face-melting Ticker EP this year.
With incredible beginnings that saw them go from small success to nationwide names, it’s no surprise the band has a natural affinity for someone sitting with their guitar to sing some sweet tunes. What’s even more impressive is when those tunes are actually Pist Idiots songs, which make the band incredibly proud of how far they’ve come.
“It’s just so cool, we never thought that people would ever cover us. So it’s just really cool,” they said when asked about how they felt when they found the covers.
Here are two covers in question that they’ve sent in to us that they absolutely love at the moment, one is of a Ruby Fields song, and one is of a Pist Idiots song.
‘Dinosaurs’ by Ruby Fields – @z0e3ds0n
Zoe once made a cover of ’99 Bottles’ by Pist Idiots, which has since been taken down, but lead the band to this equally legendary cover of their friend Ruby Fields’ song ‘Dinosaurs’.
Thanks to Zoe tagging the artists she’s been covering, we ended up with this beautiful acoustic version of ‘Dinosaurs’ in our laps, and we’re obsessed with it.
‘Booze Blues’ by Pist Idiots – @sunnybannermanroberts
Nothing like some ‘Booze Blues’ to start your morning. This young artist definitely nails this song, so it’s no wonder that the band are more than impressed with it.
Turning some countryside rock with slurring words and emotional screams into an acoustic cover is no easy task, but this Aussie legend delivers.
Pist Idiots tell us that they found this cover when Sunny from Tasmania tagged them, so be sure to tag the artist in your covers kids! The band also let us know that they look up covers of their songs sometimes to get inspiration from their fans, and if that isn’t the most wholesome thing you’ve heard this year, we’ve got nothing left for you.
