Last October, Digital Daggers jumped onto the scene with its dark and moody interpretation of Tears for Fears’ “Head Over Heels,” which was featured on “The Vampire Diaries” and has already attracted over 100,000 views on YouTube. Now, the band is back with an equally inventive cover, this time taking on the Liza Minnelli (and, later, Frank Sinatra) classic, “New York, New York.”

Just as Digital Daggers managed to make its version of “Head Over Heels” sound almost like an entirely new song, its version of “New York, New York” is a far cry from the earlier “big band-y” versions of Minnelli and Sinatra. Perhaps the best way to describe the band’s reimagining of the iconic tune is simply to tell you this: When EA Sports needed music to compliment the backdrop of a year 2023, alien-infested New York City for the trailer of its new game “Crysis 2,” it selected “New York, New York,” Digital Daggers style.
