“Crazy” Gnarls Barkley Cover by IMY2 — Video of the Week 03/08/21

by | Mar 8, 2021 | Video Of The Week

For those of you who follow along with the artists that we support, you’ll notice that we like to focus on the up-and-comers quite often. In many cases, it includes the younger generation who have taken advantage of the multitude of opportunities available for musicians in the digital age.

Websites such as YouTube and Facebook, and apps like Instagram and TikTok have given rise to creative types who can produce content and build up a following much more quickly than ever in history. The most ambitious are running with it and ushering in a brand new era of entertainment. One such band is IMY2, and we’re psyched to introduce you to them as our Video of the Week.

IMY2 (pronounced eye-em-why-two) are a 3-piece band from Nashville, Tennessee who last year started to explode on YouTube. While most live performing bands have been sidelined since March of 2020 due to the pandemic, IMY2 has been hard at work producing killer videos for their channel, gaining 70,000 subscribers during their first full year on the site.

The band is fronted by blue-haired beauty Annalise Mahanes whose impeccable vocals fit every tune they cover. From Dolly Parton to Billie Eilish, the trio produces high quality clips that rival the originals throughout their catalog. And speaking of originals, IMY2 has written some quality stuff as well that showcases the band’s depth and artistry.

IMY2 releases a new video every Friday; knowing that keeping things fresh and bringing in a new audience is the name of the game. They stay active on Instagram as well as Facebook, but the best place to get a sense of what they’re about is their YouTube channel.

It was a little tough to choose which video to feature, but we went with this one because it’s a favorite song of ours, and the delivery and performance is spot on. Check out IMY2’s cover of the Gnarls Barkley hit “Crazy” below, and then share this article, too!
