Wavves offshoot Spirit Club cover Nine Inch Nails’ “That’s What I Get” — listen

Nathan WIlliams and Co. share a surfy, blippy version of the Pretty Hate Machine classic

WavvesNathan Williams can always be counted on to do the unexpected thing, and his latest cover doesn’t disappoint in that regard. Williams’ band Spirit Club, which also features his brother/Sweet Valley collaborator Joel and Andrew Caddick of Jeans Wilder, have shared their own version of Nine Inch Nails’ “That’s What I Get”. It’s a surfy, blippy version that doesn’t sound nearly as sinister as the classic track from NIN’s 1989 debut, Pretty Hate Machine. Leave it to Williams to turn Trent Reznor’s dark vision into a chilled-out summer heartbreak jam.

“That’s What I Get” is the B-side of a 7-inch that also features “Room to Run”, a track from Spirit Club’s forthcoming album. The record doesn’t have a title yet, but as Pitchfork reports, it is tentatively due out sometime this summer. The “Room to Run” 7-inch is due out April 15th as part of a monthly subscription series via Ghost Ramp, the label that Williams runs himself.

Listen in to Spirit Club’s cover of “That’s What I Get” below.
