Band of 'iPhone Players' Remixes MGMT Song

Recently, computers have risen to a musical prominence unheard of since the 1980s. Singers from T-Pain to Rascal Flatts' Gary LeVox use Auto-Tune to tweak their voices (although only one of them readily admits it), and synthesizers have again claimed their dubious place in the musical pantheon. At the helm of all this electro business is the Brooklyn disco-rock collective MGMT.

So, considering computers' central role in MGMT's music, it should be of no great surprise that four women have managed to pull off a convincing cover of the band's song "Kids" with nothing more than their voices and -- that's right -- iPhones. Only using applications available on the App Store -- Smule's Ocarina, DigiDrummer Lite, Retro Bass and MiniSynth -- the women get dangerously close to a legitimately musical cover of the song. (Although that "bass" player could use some work).

Don't believe us? Compare the above rendition with the genuine article, featured after the break. [From: BuzzFeed]
