No, seriously, you should check out Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johnasson‘s new musical endeavor.

Not because it’s a testament to an actress trying too hard to make money off her name, or because Pete Yorn needs something to do, so it’d be funny to laugh at both of them. On the contrary — their recently-released full-length, Break Up, is a poppy, enjoyable throwback of a record. It’s pleasant, personal and without sounding too much like She & Him, carves its own niche for itself in the small world of actress-songwriter duet projects.

If you enjoyed She & Him’s Volume One, or the inspiration for this project, Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot‘s “Bonnie and Clyde” project, it can only help matters.
