Over the last few months The A.V. Club’s Undercover series has inspired many a video post around these parts. With its latest, and arguably its greatest, iteration winding down, we thought we’d go to well one more time since we’ve loved them so much. With just three songs left on their list of twenty-five, we’ve arrived at one of the oddball pairings that make this project so great to follow, as the recently reunited emo-band The Promise Ring decided to put their spin on Adele’s ubiquitous mega-hit Rumour Has It. On paper this shouldn’t work, but as you will see the Milwaukee-based act had some fun with the tune, staying true to the song’s girl-group inspired backing vocals, but making it their own by fusing propulsive duel drumming, with punk-y vocals courtesy of lead singer Davey von Bohlen.
