This is a bit easier on the eyes compared to red headed children being murdered, isn’t it? As part of AV Club’s “Undercover” series, the British band the Clientele gently covered M.I.A.‘s breakthrough hit “Paper Planes”, somehow transforming her violent prose into something a little more affable. The promotion still has 17 weeks left, with covers of the Rolling Stones’ “19th Nervous Breakdown” and Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here” waiting in the wings. Check here for all episodes of this video series.
