‘Tis the season for covers (more on that later today) and who better to ring in the first day of December than our old friends Pomplamoose? Their “VideoSongs” have collectively racked up millions of views on YouTube and earned them fans like Ben Folds. They’ve been promoting original material lately, but they return to covers with “Deck the Halls.”
As always, Pomplamoose make the tune a whole mess of fun, layering xylophone, cowbells, and what looks like the happiest drummer ever. An all-too-brief dance break (“Christmas In Space”??) encapsulates the celebratory mood, but they sing for a serious cause: the Richmond Book Drive, which sends books to needy schools all over the city.
As an added bonus, donating to the Richmond Book Drive gets you the new Pomplamoose Christmas album for free! See all the info below the video.
