Zooey Deschanel's band, She & Him has awakened my interests for indie feel good music. Their songs are, I think, interesting and their unusual vintage flavor is utterly refreshing from today's mainstream hits.
The American indie pop duo began when Deschanel met Matt Ward on the set of the film The Go-Getter where they were asked by the director to sing a duet together to be played at the end credits of the film. The bond ultimately sparked and the two collaborated thereon to form their first ever album, Volume One (released on March 2008) with Zooey on vocals, piano and ukelele and Matt on the guitars and production.
With the success of their first, the duo released their second album, Volume Two, on March 2010 and the third, A Very She and Him Christmas, on October 24, 2011.
She & Him's vintage indie genre is eminent in Zooey's wardrobe. Key pieces include colored cardigans,lace tights, comfy flats, flouncy skirts and that quirky smile she's known for. With the 1950's swinging it's way back on the runways, Zooey and She & Him might just be the new fashion and music icons.
