'Swipe' Right If You Dig This New Song About Tinder
Miracles of Modern Science craft a catchy pop tune about the ADD dating app.
There are quite a few songs online about Tinder -- mostly parodies set to Kesha and Pitbull's "Timber" -- but a funny thing happened Wednesday on YouTube: a really catchy, actually pretty great song about the dating app arrived.
"Swipe" by Miracles of Modern Science, featuring singer Kristin Slipp, has the quirky feel of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" mixed with tongue-in-cheek, but not outright jokey, lyrics. (Sample: "I saw your picture and I had to stop/ Are you for real or is that Photoshop?")
Listen and judge for yourself (and, as Styleite pointed out, take note of Slipp's undeniable Marnie Michaels vibe):
Miracles of Modern Science formed in 2005 but have made a name for themselves recently with YouTube cover songs, including their take on Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" last year.
