Watch PUP Cover Phantogram and Address the Vancouver/Toronto "Rivalry"


While PUP (and their parents) won the world over with their The Dream Is Over this year, the Toronto punk unit are turning their attention to poppier terrains. More specifically, the band have taken on “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” by New York pop duo Phantogram.

PUP ripped out the Three cover for Australian radio station Triple J as part of its “Like a Version” series. As you could expect, the redo gets fitted with some PUP-appropriate gruffness in all the right places.

Check out the cover in the video below. Also, make sure to check out the pre-performance chitchat between the group and the radio hosts, where the PUP dudes address the supposed “pretty solid rivalry” between Vancouver and Toronto. (Spoiler: “Everyone hates Toronto… And we deserve it.”)

As previously reported, PUP have a pile of Canadian dates coming up, and you can see them all here.
