KaraMel - My New Favourite Girlband

1 2 3 4 - get your undies on the floor!

Sorry it's been so long between posts but sometimes shit just happens. The prospect of catching up on everything was kind of overwhelming but then I saw this magnificent clip posted on Facebook (thanks, Joe!) and I just knew it would be perfect for my return. As far as I know, KaraMel could already be an internet sensation but I'm yet to see them get any blog loving. Which is astounding because "Underwear" is absolutely irresistible. If Ke$ha cloned herself and formed a girlband that spent all day listening to Daphne & Celeste's stunning back catalogue of hits for inspiration, I'm convinced they would something like this. KaraMel's debut is a bit naughty, unashamedly trashy and extremely fucking catchy. In other words - just how I like my pop! There's not a lot of information about this delicious duo but I think they hail from Canada and the girls are called Kara and Mel. Hence their classy band name. According to their bio they are also "getting ready to put out a debut album that will redefine the dance-pop genre". I can hardly wait! While we for KaraMel to reinvent popular music as we know it, check out their fabulous video. I love their bad dancing and the array of semi-naked men. Why isn't this a worldwide number one smash?

They are indeed from Canada. I only know of them because I'm a fan of the brunette, she's actress/singer Cassie Steele. She played "Manny Santos" on 'Degrassi The Next Generation' and has released a few albums on her own (which are pop/rock and nothing like this). I am loving them! Need to buy this on itunes like YESTERDAY!!!!

From Facebook page: "In Toronto, the girls frequently bring their insane, high-energy show to growing legions of fans, or "karamel kids" as they like to be called. With a youtube channel that has been ranked as high as #10 in Canada's "Most Viewed" section, and a sound that is already winning them radio time in the city, KaraMel shows zero signs of slowing down."

LOL I live in Toronto and I've never heard a peep about them!! They have promise, but hopefully they get more into the electro and less into the rock of songs like this, otherwise they'll gonna flop like their fellow Canadian Fefe Dobson has - twice! ;)

Fuck this trash!

Where is the FLOP Panel?

Skipping Pop Panel this week. It should be back on Sunday or Monday.

And Joe - of course I love them. I don't think it's on Aus iTunes. I'll have to do some hunting!

LOL at them not even being big in Canada. It's a cruel world!

One of these sweet confections is from Degrassi?
Does that mean she knows Drake?
Does that mean KaraMel could get Drake to do a guest rap on a re-release??!

Fabulous! Especially the gratuitous near naked hunk in the beaver hat...

I had no idea about the Degrassi connection! It makes me love them even more <3
