It’s a big month for Karmin. Their new single “Hello” is looking like a smash, building on the breakthrough success of their platinum single, “Brokenhearted.” The video for the song, premiered on MTV, VH-1 and VEVO on August 7, and, on August 15th, Karmin performed a medley of “Hello” and “Brokenhearted” on America’s Got Talent. In addition, the twosome will be featured in Gap’s global fall marketing campaign, which will roll out later this month.
Karmin’s also one of two fan-chosen finalists for Rolling Stone’s “Women Who Rock” contest, the winner of which will appear on the flip cover of Rolling Stone’s annual issue celebrating the contribution of women in music. As a final contender, the dynamic duo turned in a triumphant set returning to Lollapalloza on August 4, performing at Rolling Stone’s Rock Room.
As if all of that wasn’t enough, Karmin alsol played at the Harris Theater at Centennial Park in Chicago as part of Macy’s Passport Presents Glamorama, a benefit for the Ronald MacDonald House of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana, on August 10th. Glamorama 2012 celebrates music and fashion with The British Invasion: The Music Then, The Fashion Now. Amy and Nick will play at four Macy’s Passport Presents Glamorama events, culminating with a West Coast appearance in September.
Last year, Karmin captured the attention of music lovers worldwide when they posted a cover of Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now.” The clip went viral, becoming one of YouTube’s most viewed videos; since then, they’ve racked up about a half billion views for all of their videos online. The duo released their first album, Hello, earlier this year, shortly after their television debut on Saturday Night Live. In addition to appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Live with Kelly!, Chelsea Lately, Karmin performed as part of Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in July. Amy and Nick spent the earlier part of the summer touring around the country and headlining festivals, including a performance for a crowd of more than 100,000 people in San Francisco last month.
