Things I Love: Karmin

Karmin The little band with a big sound
artists: Amy & Nick
location: Boston, MA

Karmin is a band of Amy & Nick, the cutest little (newly engaged!) couple from Boston.  The “little band with a big sound,” they do a lot of great covers in addition to some pretty cool originals.  I’m sad to say it, but I’m not allowed to actually put any of these videos in my post. But have no fear! I’ve included the links that will take you where you need go.  And by need, I mean NEED.

If you’re a fan of Ellen DeGeneres, then you’ve probably already heard a bit of Karmin.  Their cover of Chris Brown’s Look at Me Now caught fire on YouTube with over nine million hits in around three weeks, and DeGeneres asked them to perform a bit on the show last week.  It was fabulous, and although Amy is not at all your cliche run of the mill “rapper,” I think you’ll be just as impressed as I am.

The one that made them famous: Look at Me Now – Chris Brown

A personal favorite: Price Tag – Jessie J feat. B.O.B.

Set Fire to the Rain – Adele

King of Anything – Sara Bareilles

Teenage Dream – Katy Perry

If you’ve been brave enough to watch any or all of these videos (which I highly recommend), you may have noticed that Amy sports tons of funky hairstyles, and truly rocks them all. I’m happy to report that she also posts hair tutorials, such as How to Rock a Mowhawk without Chopping Your Hair Off! This girl is fabulous, and I’m now completely obsessed with Karmin. ♥
