Originally released in October 1964 as “The Sounds of Silence,” this Simon & Garfunkle song was later retitled as “The Sound Of Silence” and became a massive hit. Several cover bands have attempted to do it justice. The all-vocal band Pentatonix released their own version in a music video directed by Ben Hausdorff.
Pentatonix takes this song from being a melancholic lament into a reflective and contemplative melody about seeing yourself alone. It is still mournful about the silence that the singer is forced to endure and the band team members have all of their talents on full display as they pay homage to this masterful musical number. Each one of them brings something different to the table and likewise, their united abilities show how far they have come as a band. Of course, do not take my word for it. The YouTube video already has over 2 million views as of the writing of this review.
