Alex Bleeker from Real Estate, on how The Nerves cover came into being:

"I'm drawn to the Nerves' intricate guitar work. We're interested in creating similar guitar parts for Real Estate, but the Nerves have a more aggressive sound so I thought it would be fun to wear that "musical costume" for a while. Blondie already did a pretty good job with "Hanging on the Telephone" so "Paper Dolls" seemed like the next logical choice."
