Leading candidate for least descriptive band name... EVER: Scala & Kolacny Brothers. These guys are a Belgian girls pop choir! There is a Scala and a Kolacny and since neither of them sing or are Belgian girls - and voice is the only instrument used here other than sparse piano - their key contribution must lie in the arrangements. I would say they get it pretty spot on with The Knife's "heartbeats". No need to know the orignal here then: MP3 Heartbeats (The Knife cover) by Scala & Kolacny Brothers
And here is them performing their version of a minor U2 hit... confection at its most syrupy...VIDEO With or without you (U2 cover) by Scala & Kolacny Brothers. Just two stylin euro-dudes and their teenaged girl peeps. Not creepy at all!?! (they are from Belgium and that's not the most stable nation on the planet right now).
