I composed an electronic cover of The White Stripes’ hit song Seven Nation Army. The song has no vocals and instead has a piano solo played to the melody of the lyrics.
My original aim with the project was to have a vocalist, however I couldn’t find one and resorted to the piano solo. I took inspiration from the Glitch Mob’s remix and implemented heavier synthetic elements and bass drops to give the song a more modern feel. I believe my design choice of having a piano solo instead of vocals added a much more personalized touch to the product.
