Scala & Kolacny Bros. leap up the chart whilst wowing sport stars at SPOTY
Perform on BBC Sports Personality of the Year following their appearance on The Royal Variety Performance and release of Special Edition of debut album this month.
In an unprecedented TV appearance, Scala & Kolacny Brothers performed two songs on the BBC Sports Personality of the Year last night (December 22nd).
One of the year’s biggest TV events, the awards show saw Scala perform the tracks 'Yellow' and 'Viva la Vida' in the opening credits and in the obituaries sections of the program.
These hauntingly beautiful arrangement's of Coldplay's 'Yellow' and 'Viva la Vida' were recently introduced to a special edition of the groups self-titled debut album. Appearing alongside the original track-list of highly acclaimed reinterpretations of popular rock and indie songs and stunning original compositions, the versions are available to hear on the special edition of 'Scala & Kolacny Brothers', out now. See full track listing below.
After hearing Scala & Kolacny Bros. haunting version of U2’s classic ‘With Or Without You’ on the trailer for ITV’s award-winning show Downton Abbey, Simon Cowell asked the Belgium choir to collaborate with Jai McDowall, the Britain's Got Talent winner, for his debut single. This resulted in a beautiful new version of 'With Or Without You', and a duet on The Royal Variety Performance broadcast on ITV1 last Wednesday. Scala & Kolacny Bros. also performed with Leona Lewis and Cee Lo Green on the show.
Since first hitting the spotlight in the UK with their re-working of Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ used in the US trailer for ‘The Social Network’, Scala & Kolacny Brothers’ upward trajectory has continued exponentially. This year has seen them headline stages at Coachella and SXSW, command the prestigious midday Sunday slot at Latitude Festival, shoot to the top of the Irish Charts after featuring on Downton Abbey and sell out performances all over the globe.
