To read the lyrics from the song, head to the Nataly Dawn YouTube channel, where the video premiered earlier today. For the story behind the character Araceli—whom Dawn describes as "my version of Job: she’s the faithful servant who gets screwed over by the gods"—head to Dawn's blog at natalydawnmusic.com.
The daughter of missionaries, Nataly Dawn spent much of her childhood in Europe, where she attended Lycées Français in France and Belgium before returning to the US to study art at Stanford University. It was there that she met Conte and formed Pomplamoose, eventually performing, recording, and editing songs and videos entirely on their own, in their Northern California home. Their first upload to YouTube, where they now have some 350,000 subscribers, was a song they had written, “Hail Mary,” which was featured on the YouTube homepage. In 2010, the duo began releasing creative covers of pop songs such as Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” and Lady Gaga’s “Telephone,” which grew their fan base even further.
Watch for more details on the release of How I Knew Her and the ensuing tour in the coming months.
