This seriously one of the coolest, most inventive cover songs I’ve ever seen or heard before. A band called Walk off the Earth was recently hanging out when they decided to record themselves performing their version of Adele’s smash single, “Hello.” The results are simply incredible, making use out of their tape dancing skills and a few “whippy tubes,” which are typically instruments used by music teachers in schools. They’re all such amazing singers, with perfect pitch, harmony and timing.
All six of the band members are phenomenal musicians, but I was most impressed by the two guys on the ends, Myles Erlick and Isaac Lupien. Like how the singer on the far right kicks his leg up so high that it hits the cymbal attached to the ceiling. Or how the singer on the far left breaks into a solo tap dancing routine that easily stands on its own. Or how they both use the zippers on their jeans to create percussive sounds, perfectly in sync with one another.
According to its Wikipedia page, Walk off the Earth is a Canadian alternative rock, ska, and reggae rock band that has gained success around the world by making low-budget music videos of covers and originals. The band built its fan base independently with no help from record labels, booking agents, or management.
