Watch Brand New Cover Julien Baker’s “Sprained Ankle”

Brandon Sloter

Brand New are currently in the middle of a North American tour with the Front Bottoms and Modern Baseball, and at last night’s show in El Paso, TX, the band took a rare breather during their set to let frontman Jesse Lacey perform a cover of Julien Baker’s “Sprained Ankle,” a track from the immensely talented Tennessee songwriter’s debut album of the same name. (Baker is opening for Lacey’s bud Kevin Devine on his current tour.) Lacey and Baker definitely share similar songwriting tendencies, so the cover ends up sounding pretty damn good and even has some members of the audience wondering “Is this new?” in the video of the performance, which you can watch below.
