Karmin is an American music duo consisting of Amy Renee Noonan and Nick Noonan.
The duo met while attending college in Boston, and became a couple. They started off releasing covers of popular songs on YouTube. In 2011, they signed a deal with Epic Records, releasing their debut EP Hello the following year, and their debut album, Pulses, in 2014. Later in 2014, they left Epic Records to release music independently.
In 2017, the duo placed Karmin on hiatus to focus on one of Amy's projects, Qveen Herby, with a new sound.

- Christmas Songs: They've covered "All I Want for Christmas Is You", "Sleigh Ride" and "Baby It's Cold Outside".
- Genre Roulette: They often experiment with and blend different genres together in their songs.
- Gold Digger: What the girlfriend's mother from "Acapella" wants her daughter to be.Mama always said, "Get a rich boyfriend
You don't gotta love him, girl, you can pretend"
- Gratuitous English: Gratuitous British? A line in the chorus of "Brokenhearted" has "cheerio" thrown in there for no apparent reason, accent and all.
- "I Am Great!" Song: The entirety of "Hello".
- Intercourse with You: "I Want It All" is about, of course, wanting one more night with a lover and struggling to repress those desires. The Double Entendres are vague and "one more night" could very well be something a little less intimate, but with the spoken lines "Gotta get you home / Get you all alone" in the intro, that probably isn't the case.
- The Masochism Tango: "Hate To Love You".
- Silly Love Songs: "Brokenhearted" and "Sugar".
- Step Up to the Microphone: Amy is the main vocalist and rapper but Nick lends his vocals to some songs, most notably in "I Want It All" with his constant "da-da-da, da-da-da" in the background.
- Stylistic Suck: Amy's falsetto in "Acapella" is intentionally bad, but funny nonetheless.
