As you may already know, I’m a big fan of the new Britney album, and I’m not sorry about it. Not one bit. In fact, I’m rocking out to “Piece of Me,” right this very minute.”
So it’s no surprise that I would have a soft spot in my icy little heart for any artist so enchanted by the crazywoman’s new songs that they would perform a cover–even a band with otherwise questionable habits, like citing My Chemical Romance as an influence.
Royal Pirates, a duo of cute Korean guys that apparently operate out of both SoCal and SeoulKo, is that kind of band–a nü-emo, sentimental-thrash sort.
But, hell, after listening to their exquisite cover of Spears’s track, “Circus,” they can make all of the crappy emo-rock-core-pop they want, and I won’t hate. All is forgiven.
