If you hear it, at some point you see it. (No hidden sounds)
This duo and their music provide examples of:
- Adorkable: Both of them, Up to Eleven. Just watch any of their behind-the-scenes videos. Or any of their videos at all.
- Bilingual Bonus: "Pomplamoose" is a made-up word that sounds like ''pamplemousse", the French word for grapefruit.
- Bowdlerization: Invoked/lampshaded in their Single Ladies cover:"Don't make me sing this part of the song, the lyrics are so bad, so we're going to skip ahead to the "single ladies" part instead."
- Cover Album: Their album Tribute to Famous People includes:
- The Cover Changes The Meaning: Some of their covers, arguably.
- Everything Is an Instrument: They have lots and lots of real instruments, and then there's stuff like Polaroid cameras and Jack's own face...
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: They seem to like this trope. "Tribute to Famous People", "the album you bought at our show (thanks for that)", etc.
- Lyrical Dissonance: "Bust your kneecaps", a upbeat, head-booping song about the various punishments that will be inflicted in you jilt the Don's daughter.
- Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly: As stated above.
- Self-Backing Vocalist: in basically every song.
- Studio Chatter
- Uncommon Time: Their cover of "My Favorite Things" has verses consisting of three measures of 5/4, two of 6/4 and then back to 5/4 for two more measures; this was a tribute to Dave Brubeck.
