If you’ve watched The Social Network, or even seen its trailer, you’ve likely heard Scala & Kolacny Brothers‘ rendition of Radiohead‘s “Creep.” The all female Belgian rock choir, led by brothers Steven and Stijn, put their mark on the already brilliant song and have leapt from Internet sensation to international phenomenon.
Now, they’ve released another single- their cover of the Foo Fighters‘ “Everlong”- complete with an all new video. Take a listen after the jump!
I don’t know if it’s simply the sheer awesomeness of their voices, but there’s just something about taking an already great song and having it sung by a choir. It adds depth to each song that you never really noticed before and accentuates the lyrics in a way that make you want more. Maybe that’s just me, but considering their busy schedule, I think not.
After the release of their self-titled US debut (ATCO Records) and their maiden US tour this spring that included stops at Coachella, SXSW and Conan, Scala shows no sign of slowing down. They’re currently in the middle of a major European tour and have secured the prestigious midday Sunday slot at the Latitude Festival in Suffolk England in July- a slot previously held by Thom Yorke and Joanna Newsom.
Scala will also debut a PBS special broadcast in August. Be sure to check out their website HERE to keep up to date on all the latest news and info. Enjoy!
