Who knew that Gob's "I Hear You Calling" would work so well as a ballad? This revelation came thanks to Vancouver's David Vertesi, who recently covered the song in radically overhauled form, and now he has given it a video.

This rendition comes from the covers album Cover to Cover: 30 Years at Nettwerk, which came out last month. The newly unveiled video captures the nocturnal melancholy of Vertesi's version, as we see the songwriter — who also plays bass in Hey Ocean! — at a crowded, shadowy party filled with booze and balloons. Everyone seems to be having a good time, but the dim lighting and slow-motion visuals give the whole thing a sense of drunken detachment. We even see one partier blowing chunks. Gross!
