Robyn’s ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ Gets Covered by Amazing Swedish Girl Group Erato
The Swedish girl group Erato have given an uber-cool makeover to Robyn‘s addictive tune ‘Call Your Girlfriend,’ and it’s nothing short of amazing.
The three-piece turns the classic magic cup game into a form of percussion as they take on an a cappella rendition of the song, which reasons with a guy to break up with his lady. The black-and-white clip shows the girls sitting around a table, performing their percussive moves in unison, with each singer taking on different harmony lines.
Not only is the arrangement of the song beautiful, but the hand-eye coordination of the trio is downright impressive. Whether the synchronization took tons of practice or came easy to Erato, it’s enough to make us think they could give any bucket drumming group a run for their money.
According to their Facebook page, Erato is comprised of 10 different people. However, Ebba Lovisa Andersson, Amanda Wikström and Petra Brohäll are the three shown in the Robyn clip. The girls have a blog, but since it’s in Swedish, all we can tell about the ladies is that they love kids, fashion, animals and viral videos.
‘Call Your Girlfriend’ was released in April 2011 as the second single from Robyn’s 2010 album, ‘Body Talk.’ It hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Songs chart in the U.S.
