Imagine a guy and a girl who are inscrutably happy about everything. One bangs on the drums, and the other bangs on a keyboard, both pretty much to the same rhythm and beat. Seeing them live, even the grumpiest dudes would find it impossible not to grin like an idiot and at least tap their toes. I’ve felt like their recordings just do not do justice to seeing them bounce about in person, but it is still worth a shot.
Strangely, I have heard they have appeared on MTV (or one of its variants), and I found numerous copies of their recent full-length at the store, so perhaps they are not nearly as obscure as they had seemed. Well anyway, my mom does not like their music, so that’s sort of a plus!
I recommend starting with their videos, such as Yea Yeah and 5K.
