The Live Lounge is on a roll this month. Last week we heard the Horrors cover Beyoncé there and today Bombay Bicycle Club hit the studio to cover the buzz act of the moment, Lana Del Rey. They brought a giant marimba for “Video Games,” giving it a much more delicate take than the version we heard Friday.

“We hadn’t heard it until we started thinking of something to do for this, and then we were all just blown away,” said frontman Jack Steadman. “That’s my song of the year, I think.”

Listen to their take – which features Lucy Rose tackling some of the vocals – below. The Lounge also has performances by Noah and the Whale, Kasabian, and Coldplay coming up in the next couple weeks, so check back to see what they cover.
