Championed by some of the biggest names in the global blogosphere earlier this year, the cute couple that is Amy and Nick from Karmin took our charts by storm back in April with their breakout single ‘Brokenhearted’.
Described by us as “unpretentious, fun, fresh, instantly likeable punchy pop laced with a sunshiney feel”, ‘Brokenhearted’ came to us from two fresh-faced lovebirds out of the good ol’ US of A and soon became a platinum selling smash hit down under.
Written about the night Amy and Nick first met (and a three day rule), the track was infectious radio gold right from the opening tip, with Amy’s acclaimed rap rounding up the rear.
Though subsequent single ‘Hello’ (the title track of their debut EP) failed to garner anywhere near the attention, ‘Brokenhearted’ left an indelible mark on pop year 2012.
So break out the drum roll please… Our No.8 Pop Song Of The Year is Karmin’s ‘Brokenhearted’. (Applause)
