Mondays are now Music Mondays here at CampusRiot, which means the video (or videos) of the day has something to do with music. We have a few videos today including a mashup we never thought would work, an insane cover and a new video for a song we have been obsessing over this summer.
Mashup: “Treasure”/ “Get Lucky”
Kurt Hugo Schneider (and pal Sam Tsui) hopped on this summer’s band wagon and covered Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” although they gave it a little twist and mashed it up with “Treasure” by Bruno Mars. While this mashup does not seem like something that would work in a million years, it surprisingly does. Well done Kurt Coco, four for you Kurt Coco.
Walk Off the Earth does insane covers. That is a fact. They blew Gotye out of the water with their cover of “Somebody That I Used to Know” and now they are giving Lorde a run for her money with their cover of her hit single “Royals.” For those of you who don’t know who Lorde is, she is a 16 year old powerhouse from New Zealand that is taking the music world by storm. You can check out her original here.
New Video: “Melody Calling”
Brit-Indie band The Vaccines are back with a new single “Melody Calling” and just released the music video for it. The Vaccines are notorious for having fun, clever, and unique videos for their singles and this one is no different. Definitely can’t wait for more new stuff from The Vaccines.
Favorite: “The Wire”
Los Angeles based sister band Haim has finally announced their debut album and they finally released another single. “The Wire” may take “song of the summer” for us this year because we just keep hitting repeat. The video for the new single is hilarious and features Jorma Taccone (The Lonely Island) getting dumped by one of the Haim sisters.
