The word “supergroup” is thrown around when two or so well-known musicians band together to form a new group. Girl Crisis, which is made up of Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek, Au Revoir Simone’s Erika Spring, Class Actress’ Elizabeth Harper, TEEN’s Jane Herships, and many other talented ladies residing in New York City, should probably be referred to as a super SUPERgroup then, due to the sheer amount of talent squeezed into one tiny space. Literally. The women came together for their summer cover (which is always of a female artist; men are reserved for the winter) to take on the Bangles “Walk Like An Egyptian.”

The cover was shot on 8mm, as is tradition with this group of talented and tragically hip musicians. The Greenpoint-based group rounds out this classic with angelic harmonizing, whistling, and just being flat-out adorable.

Watch more of the group’s covers on their Youtube channel.
