To paraphrase fellow Prefix writer Scott Orwig: "She & Him [is] the too-twee-for-this-world collaboration between M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel." And as if the already adorable "In the Sun" wasn't sunny enough, it gets even cuter with this video that features She & Him in various high school scenarios. Well, actually, it's more like Zooey dancing choreographed numbers as Ward plays the cool Robert Downey Jr. look-alike.
It will be interesting to hear if their sophomore effort will also be filled with AM radio pop or a more diverse sound. We'll find out when She & Him's Volume 2 drops March 23 on Merge.
