6.10.13 - New Music - Karmin
Karmin are in a very special place in my heart – the place where no matter what they put out there, I’m probably going to love it. I didn’t have the most complimentary things to say about their debut EP, but the two singles off it were fantastic (including “Brokenhearted”, which ended up being Pop! Bang! Boom!’s favorite song of 2012).
After a break from the Hot 100 that felt like forever (but wasn’t actually that long), Nick and Amy are back, and they haven’t changed things a bit.
“Acapella” is true to the duo’s signature style – for better or for worse. Those that are diehard fans are going to love this while everyone else…well…don’t worry about it.
The single is a bit weak for a lead from an LP, but something tells me they have more radio-friendly material coming. If nothing else, I’ll give them that this doesn’t sound like anything on radio today.
Good to have you back Karmin.
