Watch Operators Cover ’99 Luftballoons’

Dan Boeckner’s had his hands full lately, what with Wolf Parade’s recent reunion, their new EP, and ongoing tour dates. Even with all that going on, Boeckner found room to work with another new band, Operators, who released their debut record, Blue Wave, this past April. He also made time to swing by the A.V. Club and record a cover of Nena’s 1983 protest-pop classic, “99 Luftballoons.” Watch the just-shared clip below, compare it to the German band’s original, and read SPIN‘s recent profile of Boeckner.
