New Electro Cover of The White Stripes

Arjanwrites_vivek_cover

It is no secret that music lovers are always interested to hear their favorite pop songs covered by obscure indie talent. Take for example Scott Simon's cover of Rihanna's "Umbrella" that made the crooner an instant star across the big and mighty blogspere.

Up and coming Canadian electro-pop singer Vivek Shraya has taken on the challenge to remake The White Stripes' smash "Seven Nation Army," a classic among alt-rock lovers. Shraya produced his new version together together with Los Angeles-based indie crooner Megan Toohey and posted the song on his MySpace for everybody to hear and download.

Shraya stays true to marching vibe that marks the original but without any of the guitars that it heavily relies on. Instead, the singer adds a distorted and throbbing synth bass, and some playful keyboard riffs to break up the minimalism of the The White Stripes' version.

Vivek Shraya is an emerging talent to keep your eye on. I wrote about him earlier and featured a free MP3 download of this track "Chemistry." Get it here.
