It seems like only yesterday the KONGOS brothers were in our studio telling us why we should be listening to their music, and now they’re killing it at places like Austin City Limits. They grow up so fast! We just want the record to show, we saw them first.
We all want to be just like the cool kids, but nothing is cooler than the acoustic version of Echosmith‘s hit song “Cool Kids”. The techy-synthetic sounds of the original track are hard to beat, even with a voice as angelic as Syndey Sierota’s. However, Echosmith outdid themselves with this one and produced something arguably even better than the version you know and love.
Echosmith‘s song “Cool Kids” has been blowing up! It has been climbing to the top of the international charts, as well as our Top 20 Countdown list and Billboard‘s Hot 100 on this side of the globe. If you don’t know Echosmith by now, maybe you aren’t one of the the cool kids (JK). But that’s why we’re here, to bring you 5 reasons you NEED to know Echosmith.
Top 20 Countdown host Jim Shearer sat down with former You Oughta Know artist Bleachers‘ Jack Antonoff to talk music, shows and dangerous music videos. Find out why after filming Bleachers’ video for “Rollercoaster“, Antonoff has proudly deemed himself the modern day Tom Cruise.
Talk about having great family genes! The kids in this month’s You Oughta Know band, Echosmith, are one photogenic bunch. As if that weren’t enough, they have great personalities, too! They don’t want to be like the cool kids, they are the cool kids! And lucky us, we got to spend the entire day with them.
