Watch CHVRCHES Cover Lorde’s “Team”

Have you heard of CHVRCHES? You’ve heard of CHVRCHES. The Scottish electro-pop trio have been taking over the buzzes of the internet, storming forums and news headlines since their debut album, The Bones of What You Believe, came out in late September. The album, which has pleased fans and critics alike, consists of 12 tracks of pure pop bliss. Lead singer Lauren Mayberry carries listeners with her bright melodies, all through the sea of sound multi-instrumentalists Iain Cook, and Martin Doherty create.

To add to the band’s awesomeness, a video of them covering Lorde’s hit track “Team” has surfaced. From …

Robin Thicke Covers Icona Pop’s “I Love It”

Ready to get weird? Read on.

Icona Pop struck pop gold with the release of “I Love It” late last year. In the months since its release dozens of remixes and covers have surfaced, and the vast majority of them have gone unnoticed because they brought little, if anything new to the already infectious song. Robin Thicke is not your average performer, however, and while sitting down with BBC Radio One recently he debuted a cover of “I Love It” that is sure to have people talking.

Seated at a piano, yes a piano, Robin Thicke and his band worked …

WATCH: Frank Turner – “All My Life” (Foo Fighters Cover)

Everybody’s got a soft spot for Dave Grohl. Yesterday, BBC Radio 1 posted a video performance Frank Turner did in which he covered the Foo Fighters‘ “All My Life,” and Frank hits a home run. It’s an acoustic performance with his full band, and the harmonies are nailed. This is one of many other Frank Turner live videos we’ve seen in the publicity since Tape Deck Heart came out, but the song selection makes this one stand out a bit.

Frank Turner is currently on a massive world tour in which he has dates left in the United States,  …

Kanye West Reportedly Naming New Album ‘I Am God’

Oh, Kanye West. Will you ever stop being controversial?

The BBC is apparently hungry for news this morning because they cracked the code of writing and found a way to turn a one line story about a rumored baby name into a 500+ word article. Regardless, buried in their latest post on Kanye West and Kim Kardashian is a curious mention that the Chicago-bred rapper will be naming his forthcoming album I Am God. This contradicts reports from February stating the album will be called Rich Black American, and promises to bring Mr. West a lot more media …

UTG INTERVIEW: John D. Boswell (Symphony Of Science)

This feature sets itself apart from our typical arsenal of interviews here at UTG, but as the focus is an incredible project not only comprised of music, but also a fresh aim at teaching the wonders of science, we feel it’s only appropriate that anyone and everyone be aware of John Boswell and his brainchild, Symphony Of Science.

You may have stumbled upon an installment from this viral sensation in the past few years and had its catchy auto-tuned melodies about dinosaurs or the cosmos stuck in your head. If so, you may have wondered (like I did) why …

STREAM: Scissor Sisters – Shady Love

Glam-pop act Scissor Sisters have released the lead single for their 2012 album and UTG has the stream you simply must hear.

Taking their typical insanity to all new heights, “Shady Love” is unlike any Scissor Sisters song you have heard before. The beat is well within the realm of techno, but a rapping Jake Shears and more than a handful of experimental loops will keep you on your toes throughout. You can stream the song after the jump.

Scissor Sisters are preparing to have a gigantic 2012 and UTG could not be more excited for their latest material. Stay …
