blame it on Patrick Glynn December 9, 2016

Landing on their iconic Pet Sounds album, the multi-layered harmonies and instrumentals on The Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows” is one of the prettiest pieces of music I’ve ever heard.

BADBADNOTGOOD — along with Jonti, an Australian producer — covered the song for triple j’s Like A Version series, where the band put a jazzy, tempered and modern take on the song. Building the cover over five minutes, the song reaches a final peak over the last minute as the drums, synthesizers and guitars all hum in gorgeous unison.
