Pom Poms have shared their second single “123” which will be available digitally on Friday, December 11th via Square Foot Records. Following their sublime dreamy debut single “Betty”, Pom Poms bare their teeth with the rambunctious “123”. Front-woman Marlene plays a game of cat-and-mouse with a suitor who becomes her target. Listen to “123” where it premiered on NYLON and here.
In celebration of the release of “123”, Pom Poms will play a hometown show on Monday, December 14th in Los Angeles at The Echo. Tickets are available here: http://bit.ly/1QwlLC7
The group recently released the video for the alternative version of “Betty”. The alternate take emerged unexpectedly from the group improvising over a Bossa Nova rhythm and the vocal was recorded live. The magical realism of the video, directed by Jon Danovic, evokes that unforeseen moment of creation. Watch it here.
Following the release of the original version of “Betty”, Pom Poms took over the CMJ festival including a rapturous set at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom and then returned to Los Angeles for a hometown victory lap at The Satellite. Watch the California noir meets Warhol screen test video for the original “Betty” here.
Pom Poms are a new Los Angeles based group founded by vocalist/songwriter Marlene and Grammy-nominated producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Billy Mohler (Awolnation, Liz Phair, Kelly Clarkson, Macy Gray). The atemporal sound of “Betty,” which evokes a time and place that exists only in our dreams was their genesis. Their desire to put their distinctive spin on the sound of the great singers and writers they love from years gone by, inspired them to create a project that transcends both nostalgia and current tendencies with grand martini-infused arrangements and melodies. Their intoxicating cocktail mixes references like Quentin Tarantino, Ernie Kovacs, Roy Orbison, The Twilight Zone, Wes Anderson, Jean-Luc Godard, Yves Montand, Connie Francis, Johnny Cash, and Patsy Cline with their own refreshing perspective.
