The Killers are actually pretty great at covering other indie-rock songs from their debut era — just check their new-wave retooling of Bright Eyes’ “Four Winds” from 2008. So it’s no surprise that they nailed a faithful rendition of “Obstacle 1” from fellow ’80s-besotted peers Interpol at an Ontario casino show last night, where they also debuted a new song that mostly found Brandon Flowers seated at the piano. You can watch the new song via Can It Be the Way It Was on Tumblr and the Interpol cover below.
