"Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn collaborate on music. This is what it sounds like."
Pomplamoose are a quirky music duo consisting of Nataly Dawn and Jack Conte. Their genre could probably be described best as "Indie Alternative Rock Jazz Pop Rock". They became popular on YouTube in late 2009 with some covers of pop songs (see Cover Album, below), and also have lots of original music. They also appeared in a few tv commercials for Hyundai and Toyota.
They also have a distinctive style of music videos called "VideoSongs";
What you see is what you hear. (No lip-syncing for instruments or voice)
If you hear it, at some point you see it. (No hidden sounds)
This duo and their music provide examples of:
- Adorkable: Both of them, Up to Eleven. Just watch any of their behind-the-scenes videos. Or any of their videos at all.
- Bilingual Bonus: "Pomplamoose" is a made-up word that sounds like pamplemousse", the French word for grapefruit.
- Bowdlerization: Invoked/lampshaded in their Single Ladies cover:
"Don't make me sing this part of the song, the lyrics are so bad, so we're going to skip ahead to the "single ladies" part instead."
- Cover Album: Their album Tribute to Famous People includes:
- The Cover Changes the Meaning: Some of their covers, arguably.
- Everything Is an Instrument: They have lots and lots of real instruments, and then there's stuff like Polaroid cameras and Jack's own face...
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: They seem to like this trope. "Tribute to Famous People", "the album you bought at our show (thanks for that)", etc.
- Lyrical Dissonance: "Bust your kneecaps", a upbeat, head-booping song about the various punishments that will be inflicted in you jilt the Don's daughter.
- Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly: As stated above.
- Studio Chatter
- Uncommon Time: Their cover of "My Favorite Things" has verses consisting of three measures of 5/4, two of 6/4 and then back to 5/4 for two more measures; this was a tribute to Dabe Brubeck.
