To clear up any preconceived notions, Hee & Him is not a She & Him covers project. Instead, it’s a new duo with a referential name and an arsenal of various covers, done synth-folk style.
Hee & Him is comprised of Grand Lake‘s Caleb Nichols and John Pomeroy. In their own words:
Hee & Him is a boyfriend-boyfriend synth-folk duo from California. Inspired by clearance-bin 70â€™s mood music records, Hee & Him combines James Taylor / John Fahey-style guitar picking, space-age, fluttering synth sounds, and sweet two part harmonies to create their own (gay) version of boy-girl folk pop.
The below video is Hee & Him’s introduction to the world – a cover of the Pixies’ “Gigantic.” According to the Hee & Him Tumblr, an all-covers compilation (Mood Music: Mixtape No. 1) from the duo will be available in January 2011.
