Song: Taylor Swift’s “Safe and Sound”
Why we’re obsessed: We finally found the perfect Taylor Swift cover performed by Jayesslee, the insane twin duo from Australia. I’m OBSESSED with anything and everything Taylor Swift, but they really capture the depth of emotion in this track, which is off the The Hunger Games soundtrack.
This acoustic version has a similar rhythmical pattern to the original, but the blended harmonies from both Janice and Sonia make it eerie. Both ladies have super soft and effortless vocals, but together they gives me chills. So far this video has hit over 620,000 views in less than a week, I’m guessing I’m not the only one completely and happily haunted by it.
Background: Jayesslee’s Janice and Sonia have been around YouTube since 2008, uploading various covers and originals, in English and/or Korean. Sonia usually strums the guitar, but both share the spotlight with their killer vocals and harmonies!
