I had never heard of this band, and I admit that as I headed off to YouTube to look up this song, I had my doubts...but it's only fair that I give it a listen, as my kids listen to music of my choosing all the time. Besides, I like to know what my kids are into musically.
To my surprise, the song was marvelous. And the band is entertaining. Apparently they're more than a simple band--they incorporate acting and an almost vaudeville essence into their live shows--and as they perform, they are always in character, which is steampunk robots.
It's all quite confusing, but also...entertaining. Anyway, they have some musical chops.
I'm glad I gave my student's music a chance! I can see myself buying some of their stuff on iTunes.
