Stayin Alive (Bee Gees Cover) – Capital Cities

May 8, 2013

Come on! A cover of the Bee Gees? How can I pass that up? Capital Cities seems to have gotten the formula for rebooting classic hits right because the last song I blogged of theirs was also a fabulous reboot. Starting right off with the signature backbeat to a disco track, Capital Cities uses a synth evoking the disco scene that would be at home in any progressive house or electro house track to build the instrumental of their cover. I’ve mused on the links of disco to house before, their mutual love of a very regular backbeat and little interest in syncopation. This just drives that home a bit further. Capital Cities’ signature smooth vocal harmonies take this cover to the next level. Enjoy this fun and well crafted cover!
