Denver rock duet In The Whale recently recorded a cover of Violent Femmes’ “Add It Up” for the song’s 30th anniversary. “Add It Up” was always one of Violent Femmes heavier songs. In the Whale have made it with more angst. The drums are thicker and the bridge towards the second half of the song goes heavy metal before hushing to some drumsticks clicking and that signature bass line from the song. The song is one for a younger crowd to feel, and though the Femmes will always play it better, In The Whale have given it new life. You can download the track here for free.
