Back in my day, a cappella groups were regarded with sincerity similar to that of the marching band, however, like American Pie
did for band geeks, Anna Kendrick's Pitch Perfect
introduced the world to the sexualized sub-culture of the after-school singing clubs. This affinity for a cappella continues to grow and groups like Arlington, Texas' Pentatonix find fame via YouTube with covers of popular tunes. This group's latest video presents us with an arresting rendition of New Zealand singer/songwriter Lorde's hit single "Royals". Watch/Listen to Pentatonix below.
Pentatonix's cover of "Royals" is now available on iTunes
