Beast of the weeK : Balance and the Traveling Sounds - Something About Us ( Daft Punk Cover - Studio Version )

'I want to be the reason you smile everyday'

Balance and the Traveling Sounds - Something About Us (Daft Punk Cover) - (Studio Version) by Drugs and Mirrors

In order to make a cover successful, you need to maintain the integrity of the original, yet add your own creative elements and dynamics.  Balance and Traveling sounds achieve this with superior talent and skill. The lead singer, Mike Eddie, has an immaculate range, and sultry voice, which he demonstrates as he pours a, personal and heart-felt verse over the intro and into the chorus. Which proceeds into a jazz breakdown. Now the kids these days are far concerned with 'filthy drops',  which will never compare to a jazz break down, noticeable after the verse chorus(3:00). Where each instrument takes the lead with their own personal interpretation and attempt at expressing unrequited love.
Despite what the lyrics suggest, it is always the right time for, a soulful, cover of Daft Punk's 'Something About Us'.
