Elizabeth Rose - Rhythm of the Night (Corona Cover)

It's Ausmusic month in November, and to celebrate it, Australian station Triple J are inviting some of the best Aussie acts into the studio on Friday mornings to take part in their weekly 'Like A Version' segment! Now, it is late Thursday night here in the UK but that's irrelevant! We've featured The Paper Kites and Horrorshow on here in previous weeks - this week it's Elizabeth Rose.

Elizabeth Rose is an Australian DJ/singer-songwriter/all-round good person with an incredibly talented voice - she was earmarked as one of the 20 Aussie indie acts to watch in 2012, and she's making quite a stir in and across the nation, and there's good reason for that! Her cover of choice today was Corona's 90s dance hit "Rhythm of the Night". Fans of a certain Bastille will be aware that "Of The Night", from Other People's Heartache is their upcoming single, but Rose (real name Elizabeth Maniscalco) has gone all the way back to the 90s for her version. It's simply brilliant - the electronic sound is superb, her vocals are sharp and the whole piece works.
