Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox has spent the past few years amassing more than 690 million YouTube views and 2.6 million subscribers, performed on “Good Morning America,” topped iTunes and Billboard charts and played hundreds of shows to packed-house crowds around the world. As NPR put it, they’ve done this by “taking current Top 40 hits and re-imagining them as coming from older eras of popular music.” In one such remake, Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox turned Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” into a doo-wop ditty that’s garnered nearly 17 million views. Last year, they envisioned Radiohead’s alt-rock hit “Creep” as a torch-like ballad that’s racked up over 30 million views and was named one of the “9 Best Viral Cover Videos of 2015” by People magazine. Multi-Grammy winning artist Lorde praised Postmodern Jukebox’s vintage take on her hit single, “Royals,” which has been viewed over 18 million times, as her “favorite.”
The group’s accomplishments has earned them praise from a plethora of media outlets, including Mashable, who wrote, “Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox are all about reimagining music and framing it in beautiful new ways.” Entertainment Weekly wrote, “Scott Bradlee’s group is known for retro-fying modern hit songs into viral success.” Yahoo! Music added, “if you’ve been on YouTube in the last couple of years, then you’re familiar with the everything new-is- old-again brilliance of the viral phenomenon known as Postmodern Jukebox.”
