If you’re into watching covers on YouTube (and really, who isn’t?), then you better add THIRDSTORY to your playlist if they’re not topping it already. This trio of talented men can harmonize with the best of them, and their arrangements of modern pop songs take the music to a whole new level. Inspired by the likes of Amy Winehouse, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, THIRDSTORY turns your typical pop beat into a soulful rendition with hints of jazz influence. Whether they’re covering Sam Smith, Ariana Grande, or Taylor Swift, you’ll feel like you’re listening to these top 40 hits for the first time.
Another fun fact? These guys play a New York City show every Friday at a local venue in the city. If you’re ever visiting the Big Apple, be sure to grab a drink and catch a show—your ears will thank you.

I don’t listen to much reggae, but this track by London quartet The Skints was too hard to pass up when it came through our submissions inbox. I’ve always loved the original track by Katy B, but The Skints’ cover version slows things down and creates a nice juxtaposition to the fast-paced over-production of Katy B’s original, revealing its hidden, accidental soulfulness. If you want to check out The Skints’ original work, check out singles like “The Cost of Living Is Killing Me” or “Ratatat.”
