A Wild Single from Vox Pop

There are some songs that, upon their release to the public, instantly resonate with much of the a cappella community. This ignition of passion manifests itself in numerous arrangements of the same tune. “Animal” by Neon Trees is one of those songs.

In general, these songs run the risk of being overdone due to their popularity – Billy Joel probably knows what we’re talking about.¬†However, when a group really pulls it together and puts out an amazing cover that can stand above the pack, it can be… well, a whole different animal.

That’s exactly the case with Vox Pop’s “Animal,” adding depth to the frenetic original by incorporating a 1980′s flair, in the form of Def Leppard and Duran Duran samples. It’s an impressive work – both in terms of the arrangement and performance – offering a new twist on an a cappella favorite.

Vox Pop, a member of the Contemporary A cappella League (sponsored by the Contemporary A cappella Society of America), is a 10-year-old co-ed semi-professional group hailing from the D.C. area.¬†The group’s name, derived from the Latin vox populi, is something of a summarization of the group’s main mission – to engage audiences through entirely vocal renditions of pop music.
