Whatever floats your boat...

One of the weirdest acts I've ever seen. Why do I keep expecting Adams and Alex to pop out in the background?.

Could these two possibly be even weirder? Yes. Yes, they could.

A small dose of oddness. YuTub can be a little bit like vaudeville.

Geoff, if I didn't know they were for real, I would have taken their videos as SNL skits. And even though they don appropriate costumes for all of the cover songs they do, somehow I envision them as milkmaids in their everyday attire. Their stage names may be Camille and Kennerly, but I bet their real names are Heidi and Inga.

I went to their site and they do a version of Stairway to Heaven dressed as angels at the foot of a fancy staircase. You're right, they seem like they are hovering right at the brink of a put-on. The act is almost supernaturally flat and literal. The "meaningful" glances come fast and furious. You have to wonder what they think about all this privately.

I kinda liked their cover of Zombie by The Cranberries. God help me.

Geoff, Geoff, two young millennials arranging the classic hits of metal bands like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, and Scorpions for duet harp---hovering at the brink of a put-on? Oh say it ain't so! And yet, I think it's the said "meaningful" glances that tip the scale.

My favorite is their cover of Don't Fear the Reaper. I actually find it's a beautiful melody that works very well for harp. Yes, God help me too.

Wow. After you shared my bad-brain instantly named them the "creepy harp twins" and I can't get that out of my head.  I had been watching and listening to alot of Lindsay Stirling and other instrumental performers when I realized they are all going in a direction of attempting to give life to the performance through gestures and movement. These two have such a shortlist of gimmicks it's painful to watch.   It's done so well by Lindsay Stirling and I remember enjoying Dixie Chicks live for the same reason. Lindsay is a dancer so her dancing with the violin is fluid and natural.

plus, who doesn't like a little Party Rock no matter what style?

Yeah, LtAdams is certainly lurking around there somewhere Nature. Notice how they're always looking over their shoulders ? The cool thing for them is that their harps double as weapons when coupled with the arrows they have hidden in their, uh, backpacks.

Blanche, their YouTube profile says "We are Third Degree Black Belts in Tae Kwon Do and "Distinguished Experts" in rifle marksmanship."

I think they KNOW Adams is out there.

Their vids are cool and kinda creepy at the same time.

I can totally see LtAdams doing videos like these.

The Good LtAdams playing a zither and the Evil LtAdams playing a kazoo. :D
