Music covers go viral for countless reasons, ranging from the potential discovery of prodigious new talent to, more frequently, the novelty factor of a particularly strange take on a well-known artist’s song.
This instance certainly falls into the latter category, with 17-year old high school student Izzy Humair recently uploading a series of bizarre covers of well-known songs performed on a chain of many connected plastic, multi-coloured kazoos.
The New York-based student who hails from Hong Kong has uploaded several songs where she’s removed the vocals and replaced them with kazoos, including a 20-kazoo cover of ‘Fireflies’ by Owl Eyes and an 8-kazoo cover of ‘Closer’ by The Chainsmokers.
The masterpiece that has garnered the most attention however, is her incredible effort to play the melody to ‘I Write Sins Not Tragedies’ by Panic! At The Disco with a whopping 25 kazoos. At the time of publishing her video had over 40K retweets and almost 90K likes on Twitter.

The loss of a musical icon like Chris Cornell is one that is often best summed up through music, rather than words, and musical tributes to the late Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman continue to surface around the world as 2017 goes on.
The 1994 track was one of Soundgarden’s most popular of all time, and Pierce The Veil paid their respects to their late fellow rocker Cornell by performing their own take on the song at the 2017 APMAs.
The track has also been covered by Guns N’ Roses since Cornell’s passing, and watching such contrasting bands put their own vastly different spins on the same track gives even further appreciation for how incredible Soundgarden’s original version was.
The cover was accompanied by rolling footage of Cornell and also partly used Cornell’s own vocals, making it a gut-wrenching and beautiful affair for all.
Of all the big-name festivals set to go down in the back end of 2017, Darwin Festival may not be the first that jumps to mind when thinking of festivals likely to draw top-drawer acts.
You’d be dead wrong though to discount this celebration of music and artistry in the North End, with organisers this week revealing a stacked lineup set to feature across 18 days from the 10th to the 27th of August.
