It's a Band... And They're on the Internet!
If you've never heard of Pomplamoose before, you're not alone. They got lots of attention across the wilds of Facebook for their YouTube cover/mashup of several Pharrell songs. And deservedly so, because it's kind of great.
It's a lot like their Lorde/Beck/2Pac mashup from last year.
And that was it - I was sucked in. Turns out they're a couple from northern California who make "VideoSongs," in which they're not lipsynching or miming their instruments at any point. What you're seeing is what you're hearing. I watched a bunch of their videos last week, and I have determined a few things:
1) They're super nerdy.
2) Smart people like them.
3) And they are freaking adorable.
