Boulder Creek, CA-hailing indie-rock outfit Indifferent Mechanics have put their spin on ‘I’m Waiting for My Man’ by Velvet Underground. Considering that Vanessa Paradis and Bowie have already attacked the cover, it was hard to see how newcomers could add a slice of ingenuity to the table with it. Yet, they discernibly succeeded with their 70s punk, 80s goth and 90s industrial influences.
You’ll pick up hints of Poison Ivy in the production, Nirvana in the drums and the mellow bass lines while the vocals allow Waiting for the Man to carry the same nostalgic rock n roll edge.
Indifferent Mechanics cover of Waiting for the Man was released on February 24th. You can check it out for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.
