The AV Club does this neat thing every year where they have a list of their favorite bands pick a song to cover from a gradually shrinking list. It produces some weird, random takes on popular songs and this Shake It Off cover by Screaming Females is a wonderful example.
It's pretty neat hearing such a prevalent song reduced to mostly drums and a bass line with a concise guitar solo for some added accent.
Take a listen and let us know what you think!
This wonderful remake of the video was performed by the University of Newcastle and it so successfully marries captivating art with the unavoidable catchiness of this damn song.
According to the YouTube page:
"49 students were each given 52 frames of Taylor Swift's Shake it Off and together they produced 2767 frames of lovingly hand-drawn rotoscoped footage."
