Caroline Polachek and Jorge Elbrecht Dub a Justin Bieber Video with Original Song
If this is the wave of the future in terms of releasing new material, then let Chairlift's frontwoman, Caroline Polachek, and Violens' member, Jorge Ebrecht, be the professors of your tutelage as to how to successfully make an international pop sensation's video relevant for the underground masses.
Here's what the pair says about their recent collaboration.
"We went on YouYube to find a video among the highest ranks of hits, and came across [Justin Bieber's] Never Let You Go. Went on to make what we call a "sgin" (anagram of the word "sing") - an original song written specifically to synch into someone else's video on mute. Link to video here."
While they had issues loading back up to YouTube, due to using the official video footage of the Bieber tune, I came across this version of it, and hell if it doesn't work to perfection. They've seamlessly woven the vocals to match the pint-sized pop star's oral inflections and I simply can't stop watching it. For all the lyrics of their original, head here, cause you'll want to follow along. "You stupid slut" brings the LOLZ.
Watch the ingeniously-hilarious take now. Free mp3 of their original below as well.
