Back in August, the Vaccines covered Katy Perry’s #1 hit “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” at the BBC Live Lounge. Today Snow Patrol hit the Lounge and gave their take on the tune. Their version leans heavier on the electronics than the Vaccines’ somewhat garagey version, making the two a pretty good pairing.

The Scottish quintet break out their danciest side on the song, which they’ve performed acoustically in the past. Stream the new version below, then watch the acoustic take for comparison.
