Bardcore: Modern Melodies with Medieval Music

quote [ What do you get when you combine modern pop songs and medieval instruments and vocals? Bardcore. ]

I hadn't heard Pumped Up Kicks before, and now that I have, I think I prefer the bardcore version.

I'm really torn on this. This artist's version of "Pumped Up Kicks" is spot on. In particular, the lyrics use authentic Medieval slang that matches the intended implications of the modern version. I actually prefer this version to the original, which i really like - two thumbs up!

However, the rest of the songs by the artist are really dull. I thought about linking their YouTube channel months ago when I first discovered it, but decided that this was far too much of a one-hit-wonder for SE. I guess this is just a one-hit-wonder to me.

I don't disagree, but it's all a joke. It's just the intellectual exercise of imagining what modern music might sound like, if imagined during the middle ages. If any of the songs are objectively good, that's a bonus, but it's not necessary for the joke.
