Rocky Votolato started his rock life in earnest in the mid-'90s with the band Waxwing, which also included his brother Cody--currently of recent Undercover alums Telekinesis. But the quiet life called more strongly, and Rocky took to a solo career filled with more gentle sounds. Matt Pond PA is a band led by singer-songwriter Matt Pond (you follow?). Rocky and Matt recently toured together, and we asked them to collaborate for Undercover. They chose The Human League's undeniable 1981 smash "Don't You Want Me," with Rocky deciding that Matt would play the role of the lady in this tumultuous relationship. We think you'll find it swell.
