Klubbkören are an a capella (although often augmented with live bass, keyboards and percussion) vocal group/choir from Malmö in Sweden who I think deserve much more attention than they seem to get. I first discovered them a few years back, via their cover of Janelle Monae's "Tightrope" (one of my favourite songs from the last ten years or so). Everything they do is amazing. Here's Janelle's original, which is also amazing of course:
They've done some other awesome stuff too; here's their version of Pharrell's "Happy":
And their version of Nicki Minaj's "Bottoms Up" definitely improves on the original (in my not-so-humble opinion):
And their version of the Commodores classic "Easy" is equally awesome, a really good rearrangement of the original:
They've done loads of other stuff too (many in Swedish, so possibly Swedish hits that I'm not familiar with), but these are the main well-known ones that I can bring to mind just now. Their arrangements are just so good. Their very existence makes the world a better place, I think. I just wish they were more well-known. They deserve it.
But I always go back to their version of "Tightrope", so much so that here's another version:
Basically, I think they should do more. I want them to cover every song ever...I'd certainly give anything they do a listen.
BIG UP KLUBBKÕREN!
