Just Bananas About: Week of 2/13/12

So it’s been a long time since I last saw the original SNL but then I saw the Zooey Deschanel was the guest and decided to check it out.  She was funny in her cutesy way and the musical guest that night was Karmin.  What a great band to coincide with Zooey hosting.

The band is made up of a duo, Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan, just like Zooey’s own band, She & Him.  Gaining interest through Youtube, I guess they’re really known for doing covers such as: Chris Brown’s “Look at Me Now” and LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem”.

The lead singer, Amy, is awesome!  Little bit Gwen Stefani and little bit Katy Perry and maybe a little Bettie Page?  But the way she could sing one second and then rap the next that’s all her.

Karmin released a single called “Brokenhearted” which they performed as one of the songs for SNL this weekend.

The song is upbeat and a lot of fun despite the title.  This song will be included in their upcoming full album later this year.  I look forward to it!  Cheerio!
