Meghan Trainor rose to fame this year with her major debut single, "All About That Bass". The song went on to become a smash hit and mark her as one of the hottest newcomers in pop music. It even got her as far as to release a studio album and go on tour! Everything's good, but the song would actually sound even better if released in an older era.
Postmodern Jukebox took "All About That Bass" and performed it in the way it would sound back in the jazz eras. With the live band's instrumental makeover and Kate Davis sweet vocals to go by, the tune not only sounds like a completely different song, but it also has a feeling of a retro kind of hit. The playful lyrics don't sound out of place upon first listen, even though we all know they're too forward-thinking to have come out in the 40's.
The jazzy rendition of "All About That Bass" works perfectly as a piece of art, an original one indeed with reworked instrumentation. It definitely sounds like something you would hear at a live bar or a cabaret of the times. Sonically and vocally phenomenal, it's a ture masterpiece that is definitely worth a few minutes of your time. Check it out below.
