Cover of the Day: The Clientele – “Paper Planes” by M.I.A.
I know that “Paper Planes” is extremely played out. I know it, you know it, hell even my friend’s dog knows it. While browsing the AV Club’s Undercover series videos I came across this cover and it invigorated my love for the song. British band The Clientele picked this song from the list because it was “outside their comfort zone” as lead singer Alasdair MacLean says. Add in some violins and claps paired with a psychedelic sound you get a new twist on an over played song.
Check out the video below. What do you think?
