Scala & The Kolacny Brothers

I've spent most of the day working on the computer and listening to Scala & the Kolacny Brothers. Who are they you might ask? They're 2 brothers; one playing the piano and the other conducting Scala, a 60-strong teenage girl choir.

Don't worry, it's not the usual choir sound. This lot cover rock and pop hits, and they're really really good. So good that I found all their stuff on iTunes and bought the lot. Here's a quick picklist of the kind of artists they're covering.

Garbage, Nirvana, Kylie Minogue, Travis, Depeche Mode, Puddle of Mudd (yep, they keep the swearing in!), Muse, Wheatus, Radiohead. They've also done an album in German including Rammstein and Kraftwerk covers and another one in French. They have another album coming out in a couple of weeks which features Kaiser Chiefs amongst others.

It might sound a little gimmicky but they do it really well and has kept me entertained today.
