What do you get when you cross an adrenaline-fueled industrial legend with an R&B, pop-influenced indietronica band? An awesome cover of “March of the Pigs” is what.
The California-based trio the Superhumanoids have begun to really build a name for themselves, becoming known for their sunny take on electronic music — whether it’s their original tunes or their plethora of remixes, collaborations, and covers that have been popping up all over the blogosphere. On their most recent cover, they take a shot at a Nine Inch Nails classic.
Off the cult-classic album The Downward Spiral, “March of the Pigs” is an all on assault of metal guitars and Trent Reznor’s scream that helped epitomize the Nine Inch Nails sound. But Superhumanoids manage to turn the track into a beautiful synth-pop gem filled with soft vocals and R&B influenced synths.
It’s really hard to believe that this is the same song as it has been completely recreated, but Superhumanoids prove that they can make anything sound pretty.
