Sydney rockers Lillye have recorded an incredible, scorching version of The Screaming Jets classic, Better.
The nearly 30 year old song became part of Aussie Rock’s DNA from the moment that iconic drum fill kicked in. It peaked at number 4 on the Aria Charts, was quickly certified Gold and the Jets have been a household name ever since.
To celebrate its’ achievement, Lillye wanted to pay tribute to the song that has become an Australian rock anthem.
Bringing their own character to the song with its brooding versus and darker feel, the band have brought new light to it. Jets bassist, Paul Woseen gave it a big tick of approval when it was played to him too, stating that “It’s fucking great… I love how the guys have really made it their own”
“After all the hardship that Australia has had since the end of last year, we wanted to cover a classic Aussie rock tune to lift spirits and take people back to the days when pub rock was alive and kicking “ says lead singer, Virginia Lillye.
