American Authors is the latest band to join the long roster of You Oughta Know artists. Like HAIM and Lorde before them, the group is on the verge of breaking out thanks to an addictive single, “Best Day of My Life,” which has become the soundtrack for several commercials and movie trailers. All month, VH1 will be bringing fans exclusive content featuring Zac Barnett, James Adam Shelley, Dave Rublin and Matt Sanchez.
Because people may still familiarizing themselves with the indie rock band, which hails from Brooklyn via Boston, VH1 asked them to answer a series of rapid fire questions. Get to know American Authors as they tell us about their favorites (R. Kelly’s “Trapped In The Closet”), crushes (Mandy Moore and Katy Perry) and what encompasses the best day of their life (watch above to find out).
If you still haven’t heard “Best Day of My Life” then watch/listen below and try not to become immediately addicted.
