Karmin Would "Totally Work" With Kanye West.

5df6f86687a42404070f6a70670019c0.jpgIf there's something PAPER loves it's equal parts talent and humor. (Just see our latest PAPER cover!) So when we spotted YouTube cover band-turned-pop comets, Karmin, at the Betsey Johnson show yesterday we immediately went up to them. Amy Heidemann said of her Fashion Week experience, "I'm from Nebraska and Nick's from Maine. And we don't have these [fashion shows] there. We're super excited to have even been invited and we're told sitting front row's a pretty big deal for people... sorry!" Apology accepted.

Male-half, Nick Noonan, who recently popped the question to his band mate, explained of their meteoric rise to pop fame, "Doing SNL this past weekend was totally surreal. Everyone grew up watching the show and to have been asked to perform on it was entirely mind-blowing. I hope we did it justice." And they did -- according the response they've received from the highest of pop royalty. "Kanye's expressed how much he's feeling us. We'd totally work with him if he asked," Heidemann said. In the meantime, the pair who met at Berklee College of Music, are prepping their debut album which will be released in the next few months on L.A. Reid's division of Epic Records. "It feels like a week ago we were singing Chris Brown into a webcam, then a couple of days ago we did SNL, and now anything's possible really," Noonan said. "We're just riding the wave. We're having all of this documented with film crews and at the rate this is going, if we tried to sell the story as a movie script people probably wouldn't believe it."
