Watch Joyce Manor Cover The National’s “Mistaken For Strangers”

Here’s an unexpected and sneakily brilliant convergence of scenes: For the latest installment of A.V. Club’s covers series A.V. Undercover, rising punk superstars Joyce Manor performed a song by legacy indie rock greats the National. The tune in question is Boxer anthem “Mistaken For Strangers,” one of the brooding Brooklyn combo’s most adaptable tracks for a California punk band due to its aggressive guitar undercurrent. The results are pretty good! Watch below, and stick around for an interview with the band.
