Pomplamoose are an indie music and jazz duo consisting of multi-instrumentalists Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn. The band was formed in the summer of 2008. The name of the band derives from the French word pamplemousse, meaning grapefruit.

Despite the group’s presence being mostly through video uploads to YouTube and MySpace with few live performances, the collaboration has garnered significant fan support, with approximately 105,000 subscribers on their YouTube channel as of March 2010. The group first gained widespread recognition when their video performance of Hail Mary was featured on the front page of YouTube. Their videos mostly take the form of “VideoSongs”, a medium Jack Conte defines with two rules:

1. What you see is what you hear. (No lip-syncing for instruments or voice)
2. If you hear it, at some point you see it. (No hidden sounds)
