I’ve always had a deep affection for two piece bands. Here’s my list of the top 5 best musical duo’s.
#1 Matt & Kim – This cute boy girl duo are probably the best two piece band ever. They’ve recently just released a new album and are on tour. If you are ever having a bad day just listen to any Matt & Kim song and it will turn your frown up side down.
#2 The White Stripes – This pair of rockers are probably the most bad ass duo ever. A lot of people will say that they should be #1 but this is my list and I’ll do what I want. The National Ballet of Canada is currently performing a ballet to music by The White Stripes. Now that’s bad ass!
#3 Death From Above 1979 – This was one of the saddest band break ups ever. This amazing duo from Canada had me rocking out with their album You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine and one of the best remix albums Romance Bloody Romance: Remixes & B-Sides.
#4 Tegan & Sara – I have loved Tegan and Sara for so long and they deserve everyone’s love! The sister duo have unique voices and have done interesting collaborations with people like DJ Tiesto and Passion Pit.
#5 Rosedale– I guess there must be something in the Canadian water but this Toronto act is going to make it huge if they keep doing what they’re doing. Check out their Myspace for there killer cover of A-ha’s “Take On Me.”
