Last month the Joy Formidable invited some superfans into their London rehearsal space. The fans suggested songs for the trio to cover, the group collectively hashed it out, and the event resulted in a raging cover of Roy Orbison’s “It’s Over.”

The cover proves a slow-builder, but, as with most Joy Formidable songs, it gets loud if you wait long enough. The trippy video cuts in footage from various films as it builds towards its chaotic finish. Watch the clip below.
