Duo That Reworked James Brown Classic Gets Even Weirder

Subscribe to on

A week after they reworked a James Brown classic into a mellow froth, California duo Pomplamoose works that same sorta magic in their cover of ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz.’

Originally written by Irving Berlin in 1929, the song has gone through many restructures and covers over the years. And while Pomplamoose retain the song’s vintage swing, they add some synth elements that update the track and bring it into the 21st century.

But their video is another story. Singer Nataly Dawn looks like she just stepped out of June Cleaver’s kitchen when she trips and falls into a dream … which includes lemons and a salad that proceed to sing to her.

Whether it’s the group’s laid-back sound or this super-trippy video — which you can watch above — Pomplamoose are winning the Internet these days.
