Sh-boom It’s The Koi Boys

17 May


You can present a cavalcade of incredible instrumentation, and I will still say that nothing beats tradition vocal harmony. I can listen to traditional doo-wop for hours, for that 1950-60s vocal groove is so beautifully infectious. Thus, when I stumbled upon The Koi Boys audition for The Voice AU and their version of Meghan Trainor’s “All About that Bass,” I nearly fell off my couch. The Koi Boys are superstars of vocal harmonies. Don’t believe me. Listen to this.

I’ve always been partial to “Sh-Boom” by The Chords. I wrote about the song all the way back in March of 2013, and you can check out that post here. The song is a ear-dwelling ditty, and by ear-dwelling, I mean it takes up residence in your ear and rents an extended stay room with a kitchen. “Sh-boom,” sh-booms your head. The Koi Boys put such a wonderful spin on the piece, that it is hard not to fall in love with the classic over and over again.

In what will probably surpass the 100,000 view mark (and more) before one knows it, The Koi Boys cover of Trainor’s funky piece even displays the voices in the band more. Each vocalist has a unique style, from Frank Sinatra croon to hip-hop smoothness to true vocal power. This makes for a three-headed vocal monster that can take down any room, like they took down The Voice stage during their performance.
