We Love YouTube...and Who vs Who


This week's YouTube selection is strictly about fun ear candy. I first stumbled onto Who vs Who's music during a search for a compelling, rock-infused cover of the smash hit ballad "The A Team," by Ed Sheeran. While their version brings back memories of fun times with groups such as American Hi-Fi and Sum 41, it's their original single that really grabbed my attention.

Sure, Who vs Who quickly draws obvious comparisons to Paramore and even some of the raw, early sounds of No Doubt, but I always enjoy hearing a European interpretation of American Punk. With energetic vocals and a tight rhythm section, it's no wonder that Who vs Who has won several local competitions in the Netherlands.

Their single "Trying" is a fun and youthful track with lots of tasteful touches in its production. Mastered by world-renowned engineer Ted Jensen, there is much to enjoy in this relatively unknown video.
