You might be asking yourself, who in the heck is Father John Misty and why is he covering one of the coolest and dirtiest Nine Inch Nails tracks? Those are all great questions and I will attempt to answer them for you right now. J. Tillman is a very talented multi-instrumentalist who had been on the scene for quite some time until he decided to front his own band called Father John Misty. Apparently, Father John Misty has taken the indie rock scene by storm and they have dominated. During a recent performance at the Riviera Theater in Chicago, he told fans in the audience, “It’s a little sappy, but I would like to play my favorite love song for you” and then they started playing Closer by the Nine Inch Nails. Closer is one of my favorite Nine Inch Nails songs and Father John Misty does a tremendous job covering the track. He even sets the mood in typical Nine Inch Nails fashion with the green lights and the silhouettes. Check out the amazing performance below and check out Father John Misty.
