Young London’s cover of The Buggles’ classic ‘Video Killed The Radio Star’ is really good, you guys.
My general rule of thumb is that if you decide to cover The Buggles‘ iconic “Video Killed The Radio Star,” you need to do it well. Boston-based electro-pop duo Young London only began making music together in 2011, but you’d never be able to tell. Their synergy is unmistakable, and their take on Buggles’ iconic classic is a super fun, danceable reinterpretation. Set to a thumping, sugary sweet dance-pop beat that reminds us of Katy Perry-meets-3Oh!3, vocalist Matt Rhoades takes on the first verse while his co-vocalist Sarah Graziani handles the hook and signature “oh oh”s.
Listen to Young London’s cover of The Buggles’ “Video Killed The Radio Star” after the jump.
Under the direction of producer Mark Maxwell (Blake Lewis, Boys Like Girls), Young London recently completed their self-titled debut, which was released this past January. And look, we know we have to be open to new things, but before we dig into to Young London’s originals, we have to listen their “Video Killed The Radio Star” cover at least like, 63 more times. Cool? Cool.
