We Found the Hottest A Cappella Cover of Sia’s ‘Chandelier’
“Chandelier,” by the famously faceless Sia, is one of the most covered songs on the internet. From Sara Bareilles’ killer solo version to countless talented (and not-so-talented) acoustic musicians, it’s been the source of many tributes and fails. But today, the rest can step down, because we’ve found the best one yet.
Meet Twisted Measure, the acapella group from Elon University in North Carolina. They’ve come up with this pitch perfect rendition of the hit song. According to their website, they write all their own arrangements and always perform them barefoot because going shoeless “brings a little bit more ‘sole’ to the music.”
These vocal virtuosos know how to self-promote. If you take anything from this other than their seriously smooth sounds, let it be that an online presence works. The group is on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and sells music on iTunes and fan merchandise on their online store. To top it off, this very same video found its way to Buzzfeed through the sly machinations of the group’s president.
Well done, guys.
SERIOUSLY, put this song on repeat and sing your face off right now. How great is this cover?
