New Music: Karmin – ‘Acapella’

Acapella

Karmin parlayed their YouTube success into a deal with L.A. Reid at Epic Records and released their EP Hello last year. Now the Boston-based duo of Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan goes solo on “Acapella,” the first single off their full-length debut.

Over a booming bass line, produced by Martin Johnson (Boys Like Girls), Amy raps about finding Mr. Right and realizing he wasn’t so perfect after all.

“‘Acapella’ was created almost exclusively with human voices,” says Amy. “We flipped the original meaning of the word ‘acapella’ to mean ‘D.I.Y.,’ or should we say ‘D.I.A. – Do It Acapella!’”

They recorded 25-30 songs for their Epic debut, which is due this later this summer. They will also hit the road with the Jonas Brothers starting July 10 in Chicago.

Listen to Karmin’s sassy kiss-off anthem below.

    I like it! Very catchy! She raps better than most of these “rappers” AND she doesn’t get robbed at gun point!

    Nobody cares about them, ’cause they are not black, right? White girls can’t be good rappers?

    @Robin, what are you talking about? Compared to actual rap artists, they’re quite soft. Nothing wrong with that, but it’s obviously not going to attract the same audience. It’s not about skincolor.

    @Robin, Listen don’t be a racist. Just like black people sing pop music white people can do rap music. Such as, Ke$ha & Cher Lloyd.
