The Aussie rock and electronic outfit performed the cover as part of triple j’s ‘Like A Version’ series. 

The band’s frontman Rob Swire explained his reasoning for the choice of track, saying: 

“We just thought [Swift] needed some exposure… Really just needed some help shifting those numbers, selling some tour tickets.”

“She’s really talented, and we just thought she needed a bit of help down under.”

Makes sense.
