If you slept on Revolver last year, it’s time to wake up (#whoisarcadefire). Their breathtaking Music for a While showcased the Parisian trio’s strong melodic instincts and the cover we watched them sing last August delivered their strongest harmonies to date. Well, today’s premiere combines both strengths. It’s an ABBA song presented in an unassuming vocal arrangement.

The original song featured the Swedes’ voices run through a vocoder. Needless to say, the close harmonies here present a marked departure. This may not be headed for Broadway anytime soon, but it could create a spellbinding evening at a classy lounge somewhere in Montmartre.

  1. mmmh … ist that the right “revolver”-bandlink? Judging from the pics, these are half as old as the ones on http://www.revolver-band.com/

  2. Nice catch Sal! Updated the link to the right one (http://www.revolvermusic.tv).

  3. They are getting better and better. Their version of “Falling In Love With You” is also worth checking out, as is their own wonderful album “Music For A While”.
