Izzy (8) the drummer and Aaralyn (6) on vocals comprise the duo, Murp. I came across their work a few weeks ago while taking my daily rounds of the typical YouTube fuckery. The song title, “Zombie Skin”, alone granted them a listen in my book. To my surprise, the song was not just a cutesy dad-made-me-do-this kind of gig. It, along with the video, was actually not bad though rather raw and a little rough around the edges. The vocals are particularly impressive.
The genre of the music could be characterized as Kindercore. I know. What an awful portmanteau. But semantics aside, these kids might actually have something here. They have been posting videos on their channel for over two years, but this one has by far gotten the most hits. Coinkydink? I think not. But why it hasn’t gotten at least twice as many yet, is beyond me.
See for yourself. Gimmicky or genuine talent?
