Most performances by She & Him have been described as energetic, expressive and harmonious. Consisting of musician Matt Ward and actress Zooey Deschanel (also backed by the incredibly talented Chapin Sisters when playing live), this band skillfully mixes different sounds, genres and influences together. Their success at recording original hits as well as a wide range of covers shows just how distinct their talent is. Essentially, their eclectic taste bleeds into their music. In addition to their ardent and melodic nature, these astounding performances by She & Him will further convince you that they are here to stay.
1. Sentimental Heart
The song "Sentimental Heart" alone is a clear contender on this list, influenced by the fact that this is one of my all-time favorite performances by She & Him. The meaningful lyrics are reminiscent of Nobel Prize winner Naguib Mahfouz's words: “It’s a most distressing affliction to have a sentimental heart and a skeptical mind.” With every listen comes a reaffirmed love for She & Him's nonpareil sound.
