The Skivvies are award-winning singer-actors Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley. Last year they became YouTube sensations for videos that displayed their powerful harmonies as well as their powerful abs. They recently released their debut single, a bluegrass-tinged hiphop mega-medley parody called "Hardbody Hoedown," and its music video, directed by Running With Scissors author Augusten Burroughs.
Molina says, "We started with covers of massively-produced dance songs, and we knew we were going to strip down the arrangements – cello, ukulele, glockenspiel, melodica – so we thought, ‘Why not literally strip down to our underwear to play them?’" Thus The Skivvies were born. Living room videos turned to live shows with big name guest stars who strip down on stage with the band. Cearley adds, “The mashups we’ve been doing at our live shows naturally led us to our parody single, “Hardbody Hoedown,” where we give the filthiest rap the prettiest twang.”
