A viral YouTube video showing a London girl band replacing musical instruments with iPhones has attracted over 180,000 viewers. A group of four girls from west London called the Mentalists downloaded software from the iTunes App Store onto their iPhones and iPods, then used the devices to perform a cover of the MGMT track Kids. 

The software mimics the sound created by guitars, drums and synthesizers. The three-year-old band has released a single through the iTunes Store.
