London children's choir covers Crystal Castles' 'Untrust Us' – watch

The Capital Children's Choir recorded the track at Abbey Road studios

A London children's choir has covered the Crystal Castles song 'Untrust Us' – watch it above.

The track, which is the first song on the Toronto electro duo's debut album 'Crystal Castles', was released in 2008. It samples Death From Above 1979's 'Dead Womb'.

"We wanted to cover Crystal Castles because we liked the idea of replacing their synths and percussion using only our voices and hands," the Capital Children’s Choir say in a statement. Their version of the track was recorded at London's Abbey Road studios.

The choir was started in 2001 in St. John's Wood in London by Canadian-born soprano Rachel Santesso. It now has over 100 members and has performed everywhere from the Vatican to UK arenas with the Spice Girls. Other covers performed by the choir includes tracks by Lily Allen, Bjork and Lady Gaga.

Crystal Castles released their last album 'III' on November 12 last year. It features the tracks 'Affection', 'Plague' and 'Wrath of God'.
