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
