Old Daily Download favourites Exlovers just released a cover of Chris Isaak’s 1989 classic ‘Wicked Game’.

Exlovers

The band, who just got off tour with Kurran And The Wolfnotes (more on them tomorrow), have recorded a pretty sublime version of the song, a quiet-loud interpretation that comes across a hell of a lot better than HIM’s mauling of the track a few years ago.

I wonder if they’ll do their own version of the video to go with it.
