The Veer Union – ‘Monster’ (Shawn Mendes & Justin Bieber Cover)

Almost exactly a year ago we featured Jedward’s John Grimes’ cover of the Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber single, ‘Monster’. Now we bring you another take on the song, by The Veer Union. Unlike John’s rendition, which saw him sing accompanied only by his acoustic guitar, and indeed, the original song, which was a dance pop number – in the hands of The Veer Union, and featuring Late Night Savior & Stealing Eden, the song is shaken from its pop foundations and given a more punk, almost heavy metal treatment.

Canadians The Veer Union throw social constructs and pre-conceived ideas out the window, and their sound is a fusion of pop and punk, with a spicy pinch of heavy metal. They found success with their covers of songs by Halsey, and Justin Timberlake, while at the same time honing their own sound.

With ‘Monster’, The Veer Union takes the pop collaboration and charges it up with an intensely electrifying fire, which captures enough rage, and passion to elevate the track to a whole other level, and rock you to your core. The song is accompanied by an adrenaline charged performance video, which takes us right into The Veer Union’s studio, where we see everything that goes into making such a passionate version of the song song. While we can’t link the video directly from here, make sure to tap on the link below to hear it in its entire intensity.

We hope you’ll check out The Veer Union and their music online. They can be found on their official website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
