Up on the housetop


If you’ve been watching TV lately you’ve probably come across catchy tune on a Hyundai commercial. To the non-tech savvy people out there they probably have no idea who this quirky couple is and where did they come from. If your a fan of YouTube and music you probably have a better chance of knowing who they are.

They are Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn who are better known as Pomplamoose on YouTube. This duo has been producing their own brand of music and videos since 2008. They have done covers such as Lady Gaga’s “Telephone”, Michael Jackson’s “Beat it” and many others. The majority is music that they write and produce themselves. This is all without a traditional record label or contract.

This was the video I first discovered them back in the spring of this year. They call their style “VideoSongs” which I’ve found to be unique and refreshing. Jack is multi-instrumentalist and a bit of a spaz and Nataly has a wonderful voice with mesmerizing eyes(yes I have a crush, don’t tell my wife).

I certainly find it fascinating how they’ve done this without a tradition record deal or contract. I wish them the best of luck and will continue to be a big fan of theirs.
