Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” was released in 1984. The soulful and poetic song speaks of suffering and joy, playing well with Cohen’s Jewish background. References to King David and Samson the strong man show that even men of God can fall but rise again.
The song gained popularity in the 2000’s thanks to films like Shrek. As it gained popularity, the song found its way on the lips of many artists who have put their own spin on the song.
Creativity at its finest.
The misty trio took the same song but went low. We’re all used to singers showing off their amazing vocals, going from note to note, displaying incredible range. Well these guys have range but in a style all their own.
Check out their description on their YouTube channel.
“Our story begins when three voices were forged together by the notes that rattle the soul: low notes. One day we happened upon a tunnel with waaaay better acoustics than our bathrooms. Naturally, we couldn’t help ourselves, and the tunnel birthed the first song we ever sang together.”
The song is “The Misty Mountains Cold” from The Hobbit.
Go ahead and check it out. It is good!
Covid happened and the guys went in to hibernation in a sense. But they continued experimenting and recording songs. With the new year comes new music from the trio. Hallelujah indeed!
The snow and those hats do work well with this rendition. The boys can sing!
It’s definitely the same song. But it’s the way they sing it that gets to the listener. Bass background!
“Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah”
It’s haunting, enchanting, and enthralling all in one.
This is a rendition fit for a movie. One of those fantasy type films that allows viewers to escape for awhile. Now it’s not all bass. The guys can sing from low to high but that lowness makes it super unique.
A viewer said,
“Question here, do y’all give yourself chills while singing or is it just all of us? Love this!”
The effect is the same.
They really are fairly new. Look at their channel and you’ll discover seventeen videos. Just seventeen. So if you want more from the guys, go ahead and subscribe so you don’t miss anything. It’s worth it anyway!
People like Jeff Buckley, Bob Dylan, and Josh Groban were responsible for the song’s fame but there are countless other artists out there who deserve credit for putting their own flavor on the song. Which one is your favorite? The guys here deserve a spot.
