Broken Social Scene cover Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” for The Time Traveler’s Wife

bss-boys

So Canadian uber-band Broken Social Scene has already announced that they will play a wedding band in the upcoming sob fest The Time Traveler’s Wife. Yesterday they let slide that they covered the always covered Joy Division track “Love Will Tear Us Apart” for the film’s soundtrack. Front man Kevin Drew sounds eerily too similar to Ian Curtis, and it’s unusual to hear a piano this prominent in a BSS song, but it’s well done.

In a soundtrack heavy of Mychael Danna, this track will find itself getting plenty of attention, I’m sure.

You can listen to the song on Pitchfork.

  1. apparently the writer of this has never listened to earlier BSS material. Saying piano is not a prominent instrument they have ever used before. See “Lover’s Spit”.
