Pomplamoose is a duo consisting of multi-instrumentalists Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn. They are a husband and wife duo pair are veterans at putting pop songs into indie, funk, and jazz genres. Their latest, a funk cover of The Postal Service’s top hit “Such Great Heights,” comes recorded with Conte’s other group Scary Pockets. While Nataly takes over the soft vocals, Jack nabs the keys. The couple has invited other musical guests, including Panic! At the Disco’s bassist Nicole Row, to join them, along with Ryan James Carr (drums), Jude Smith (guitar), and Ryan Lerman (guitar).
This rendition is irresistible from the pleasantly layered and bright-timbred ‘ahhs’ to groovy ‘boom-chick’ snares. Once we finally get to the chorus and the held synths meld into the vocal harmonies, the cover blooms into a laid-back, angelic-sounding funk tune. The jam-band style instrumental break before the final choruses is the icing on the cake before the song ends amidst the musicians dancing.
