Scary Pockets: How Deep Is Your Love

Swatkins once again joins Scary Pockets for a funky cover. And while I’m digging the work of bassist Nick Campbell on this one, I’m also digging the horns. Here’s the group doing their thing on The Bee Gees tune, “How Deep Is Your Love.”

Scary Pockets: Hide and Seek

As with many Scary Pockets videos, I see the title of the video first and think “I’m not sure how this one is going to turn out.” Then I watch and realize I need to stop doubting. In this clip, the group adds the funk to Imogen Heap’s “Hide and Seek.”
