The indie pop duo is sure to put on an energetic show with their catchy beats and their passion for performance that will be on display for two Southern California shows; Sun, Dec 8 at KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas and ringing in the new year at the Observatory Dec. 31.
Their hit “Safe and Sound” made its way to the Billboards and has been receiving attention ever since. The song has the perfect amount of catchy indie styling’s that features unusual tendencies with their lively club trumpets coming in at just the right time to make your head spin, it ‘is so full of energy that you can’t help but dance.
It’s no surprise that these two former jingle writers have a way of producing catchy songs. The two writers came together through a craigslist posting looking for song collaborators, and they couldn’t have found a better match.
