Over the weekend someone Tweeted about this video and I absolutely had to share it with you. While I’m admittedly not a fan of Beyonce’s music, I will say that this is one of the most creative covers I’ve heard in a long time.
Cover of “Single Ladies” by Pomplamoose
But you would be wrong if you thought this was just a YouTube one-hit-wonder. As I went through their videos I found amazing covers of songs like Nature Boy, My Favorite Things, Do What You Want (by OK Go), 7 Nation Army (White Stripes) and Mrs. Robinson (Simon & Garfunkel).
All of the vocals, harmonies and various instrumental and percussion parts were performed and recorded by Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn who make up the band Pomplamoose (Twitter). I love their creative use of household items like pots, wine bottles or corkscrews to make up the various background beats. Their finished recorded sound isn’t bad for what is apparently a simple in-home recording room.
