Beautiful girls and beautiful iPhones make beautiful music together

I think we can all agree that the only thing sexier than girls who play instruments is girls who play iPhones. And since girls who play iPhones is simply a fetish I made up just now, you can imagine my surprise when faithful Macenstein reader Antonio sent us this clip of the UK girl group The Mentalists playing a cover of “Kids” by MGMT on their iPhones and iPod Touches.

I’ve complained before about how I kept deluding myself into believing I would somehow be able to play a musical iPhone instrument when I never could play a real one. After buying Pocket Guitar, Ocarina, Mini Piano, and countless others, I finally gave up. Well, apparently if you have some degree of musical ability in the real world, you actually CAN make some pretty cool music on the iPhone. The Mentalists used Ocarina, Retro Synth, miniSynth, and DigiDrummer Lite to create this masterpiece, and if you are at all familiar with the original MGMT version, you will find this most impressive. I’ve been thinking for some time now that Macenstein needed a theme song. I think an all-girl iPhone band may be just what we’re looking for…

    Maybe I’m alone here, but that was seriously clever. It’s a good song and there’s definitely something to be said for the performance….
