Pomplamoose (a play on the French word for “grapefruit”) is the musical and romantic partnership of Nataly Dawn and Jack Conte who met as students at Stanford University. Dawn spent much of her childhood in Europe and is a fluent French speaker. Shortly after forming in 2008, their weekly YouTube videos of pop covers quickly went viral, earning Pomplamoose millions of views and a large global fan base. Since then, the band has released two albums of French music.
California's Pomplamoose blend the quirky, jazz-tinged, anything-goes songcraft of Regina Spektor and Frida Hyvönen with the open-road, indie pop anthems of fellow male/female duos Mates of State, the Bird and the Bee, and Matt & Kim.
