They are Merilou Salazar and Jessie Meehan, from Orange County, California, and are making a name for themselves as a distinctive indie pop/dance duo, influenced by bands like The Killers and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

We’ve done a lot of self-promotion. We go to the different gay-pride festivals. And we pick up a pair of headphones and put them on people’s heads, so that way, hopefully, they’ll buy a CD. We sold 500 or 600 copies of our EP like that. (ocweekly.com)
We’re not surprised. Listen to the other tracks on their EP Young and Pretty Clean, and you may well find yourself hooked.
