It's begun: Only a couple of months after signing to Epic Records, Oakland crunk-pop outfit Wallpaper. is on a media storm, pushing "Best Song Everrr" on radio stations around the country and, as of yesterday, to late-night television. Clad in pink ridiculousness and showing no shortage of enthusiasm, Rick Reed and Co. performed the besotted single on Jimmy Kimmel's show, sounding about 40 times more energetic than anyone has on Saturday Night Live in, well, a while. Translating a tune rife with studio trickery to the live stage might need a tad more work -- we miss some of the vocal manipulations in this performance -- but this is still a coup: A homegrown Oakland artist bringing his own smartly silly party rock to the masses. Watch the video after the jump.
Wallpaper's next hometown show is March 23 at the Rickshaw Stop.
