Covercentric: Scala & The Kolacny Brothers Return

Thanks to the appropriate use of their Radiohead “Creep” cover in “The Social Network” trailer, the Belgian female choir’s profile has skyrocketed overnight. Scala & The Kolacny Brothers are now freshly signed to an American major label, and their first US release is “Dawn”, a digital EP featuring, of course, “Creep”. However, in their home country, a brand-new album, “Circle”, was released back in May. It features more ethereal, heartfelt renditions of songs like Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida”, Alanis Morrissette’s “Ironic” and Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody”. Now I never really liked that Kings of Leon track much in the first place, but Scala’s version made me gain a newfound appreciation for it. If you’re already familiar with Scala, then you’re in for more of the same. They’re kinda like Nouvelle Vague for me, I know it’s unlikely they ever change but I still remain a fan. The cover picks this time are a bit on the safe side, though. I like it when they do the fun pop numbers like Kylie, Garbage, Wheatus, or the not-obvious but right-on brilliant ones like Bjork’s “Joga” or Damien Rice’s “The Blower’s Daughter”. Check out 2 highlights, and see the tracklist after the jump.
