ECHOSMITH PERFORMS GOLD SINGLE “COOL KIDS” ON THE TODAY SHOW

2014’s breakout alt-pop band Echosmith performed their hit single “Cool Kids” live on NBC’s The Today Show this morning!

The LA-based siblings have just been named an official VH1 “You Oughta Know” Artist for October, becoming part of a highly acclaimed franchise that has helped break artists such as Ed Sheeran, Adele, Lorde, Sam Smith, and many more. There will also be a brand new video for “Cool Kids” premiering on MTV tomorrow, all a continuation of the band’s rising success from the past few months. The single is now certified Gold and has over 7.5 million views on YouTube, in addition to maintaining the #1 spot on the iTunes Alternative chart and rapidly climbing the Top 40, currently at #26 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Cool Kids” was also used in Apple’s recent keynote speech to highlight their new Apple Watch.

Echosmith recently announced an extensive fall tour, which will take them on the road with American Authors for 3 weeks as part of the Honda Civic Tour, for 8 dates with Neon Trees, and for their own headlining tour throughout November, with stops in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and more. See below for a full list of dates.

 

“Teenage daydreams inspired by new wave angst and California sunshine. . .

Echosmith’s breakout single “Cool Kids” is a back-to-school-season anthem for those feeling disaffected by their peers.” – Rolling Stone

 

“Charismatic lead vocalist Sydney Sierota, 17, puts a voice to teen alienation.” – USA Today

 

“…an up-and-coming band that we’ve totally fallen for. Echosmith is comprised of four siblings…and they each have a downtown, ’60s rocker vibe that emanates pure cool.” – TeenVogue

 

“Echosmith’s wispy back-to-the-lunchroom anthem, ‘Cool Kids’.” – #1 on Buzzfeed‘s list of “61 Songs You Need in Your Life This Month”
