I first found out about Gimm+Icky in November 2012 when I was looking for a cool show to take my sister to while she was visiting from Seattle. I was hooked as soon as I listened to their songs on SoundCloud. And then I discovered all of their YouTube videos… I suddenly knew, if I went to this Balls and Sweaters Dance of theirs, I had to meet them and write an article about it. And so, I did.
But that’s not what this Music of my Life post is about. I decided I would do a Music of my Life post in honor of their upcoming “Drunken Irish Show” on March 16th, about one of my favorite songs of theirs.
“Serious Face” is the first song I heard by Gimm+Icky when I went in search of their music to listen to. I was disappointed to find out that none of their music was on iTunes yet – but never fear, dear friends! They now have two singles out on iTunes… “Shake That” and “It Starts Tonight,” two awesome songs, are now available for purchase.
“Serious Face” makes me so happy to listen to, and when I watch videos of them performing it, I just can’t help but to dance along. And their acoustic video version of “Serious Face” is amazing, even though I laugh every time because they are all making such hilarious faces, trying to keep their faces serious.
If you’re in the Nashville area, be sure to check out The Drunken Irish Show presented by Gimm+Icky, and with special guests The Lonely Biscuits and VanCo. on March 16th at 12th and Porter.
FUN FACT: Both Tripp and Jeff of Gimm+Icky would pick Morgan Freeman to take a “serious face” picture with… 🙂
And now, without further ado, here is their acoustic version of “Serious Face” from YouTube.
