Pomplamoose makes VideoSongs, a new medium with 2 rules:

1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice).

2. If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds).

Dear Nataly Dawn & Jack Conte (Pomplamoose),

I’m not sure if you invented the “VideoSong” medium but I had never heard of it until I came across your music. The format engages the viewer/listener beyond the traditional audio experience and in a different way than the standard music video, where the visual component usually has it’s own narrative. The final product perfectly marries the live music experience with a polished, recorded track. I dig it.

But none of that would matter if the music wasn’t great. Your covers and mash-ups are refreshing takes on pop songs and classics we’ve heard way too many times. That’s a serious accomplishment. I’d love to see a live show but you’re totally missing Texas on the upcoming tour? Wassupwidthat? Maybe you’re waiting for SXSW.  Me too…

Keep up the super cool work.

PS:  I didn’t think Get Lucky or Happy could get any more catchy but I was wrong. Proof: Pharrell Mashup
