I was curious if anybody here listened to Pentatonix.
I got hooked on them in a huge way. I'm not much of an acapella guy, and I listen to instrumentals more than anything, but these guys blew me away. They are insanely talented. The bass, Avi, just face melting. If you ever saw the beat-boxing celloist, well, that's their percussion. 'Nuff said. The baritone, tenor, and soprano-alto are crazy good, too. It doesn't hurt that the soprano-alto, Kirstie, is smoking hot, too.
Their covers are really good. I often like their covers even if I don't like the originals, and even if I like the originals, I often like their covers more. Their originals are also really good, too.
Their latest cover:
I also recommend checking out:
Daft Punk Medley
Can't Hold Us (Macklemore cover)
Run to You (Original)
Aha (Imogen Heap cover)
I Need Your Love (Calvin Harris cover)
Carol of the Bells
Their Sing-Off performances are also insane (Season 3 champions). I've seen groups many times their size not give a performance as full as these 5. Each is so honed in and they complement each other perfectly, and they do really sweet arrangements.
Thanks for letting me gush.
