Let’s face it: this whole a cappella cover thing has been done to death. So, judging from the fairly decent amount of media attention that new vocal collective Sonos has been garnering for the past 6 months, one must be forced to admit they must be doing something right. The answer lies in their fine-tuned blend of contemporary music and alternative genres, and a classic grasp on choral arrangements.  The SoCal singers cover a wide range of artists that include the likes of Radiohead, Fleet Foxes (can you guess which song?), Bjork, Imogen Heap, Rufus Wainwright, Depeche Mode, Bon Iver and Jackson 5.
