The Clientele might not be the obvious choice to cover M.I.A.'s breakthrough hit "Paper Planes," but the relatively gentle British band did right by the song, adding two violins and inviting both their tour manager and a photographer friend to sit in on the Undercover session. Frontman Alasdair MacLean even decided to sneak in a line from a Clientele song, "Since K Got Over Me." The Clientele's latest Merge release is Bonfires On The Heath.
