Harmonized beatbox EDM featuring boys and girls in ’90s-style cyberpunk makeup. Sure, whatever. Pentatonix, the winners of NBC’s The Sing-Off, aren’t really my style (a capella drives me a little nuts), but I’m down with the 5th Element cosplay. Check it out after the jump.
From The Daily Free Press:
The group, which consists of members Scott Hoying, Kirstie Maldonado, Mitch Grassi, Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola, has certainly lived up to the expectations it created for itself after winning Season Three of NBC’s The Sing-Off.
Upon their victory, the group released a debut album and Christmas EP, toured across the country and received millions of views on their YouTube channel.
And they’re not slowing down — this past week, Pentatonix performed their hit “Evolution of Beyoncé” medley on The Ellen Show and won the title of “Best Response Video” at the YouTube Music Awards for their collaboration of “Radioactive” with Lindsey Stirling.
PTX is taking the a capella world — and the entire music industry, for that matter — by storm. And, as one can imagine, PTX Vol. II is certainly no disappointment.
PTX continues to stretch their boundaries and to prove that they are capable of more than the covers for which they are known, as evidenced by two other originals on the album. One of these, “Love Again,” is a quintessential dance number rounded out by tight harmonies and a floating chorus melody, courtesy of Grassi.
