Artymove Covers Lo-Fi-Funk's "Steppin' Out"

Back in May, I alerted you about hot new Swedish pop duo Artymove. The group recently recorded a cover of Lo-Fi-Fnk's coming out anthem "Steppin' Out" that follows the release of their debut album "Bones" that is available on iTunes worldwide now.

Stockholm's Mathilda Lindgren (vocals) and Peter Björklund (laptop/keyboard) turned the quirky original from the two electro hipsters into a beautifully layered, arresting pop tune.

Artymove's version starts out with Mathilda's angelic vocals that are perfectly on pitch and set the mood for the rest of the song. Right after the chorus, a throbbing synth bass kicks in together with live drums and guitar to create a beautifully atmospheric piece that does Lo-Fi-Funk's version fully justice.

This cover is pretty darn impressive, and also demonstrates the strength of the original.
