There is something I always find super magical about musical families. As someone who grew up with a musician father and failed to learn any instrument – it is always nice to see skills passed down through generations via passion and exposure.
It was only a short while ago that brother and sister Cooper & Gatlin came on to my radar with this fresh Tep No remix….Having grown up hanging around their dads studio and touring with their mother, the upcoming Pop duo clearly found all of the inspiration they needed at a young age. Raised in a small town outside of Nashville, the Green family moved to LA in 2014 – at which point Cooper & Gatlin got to work and prepared to launch their project.
With an impressive skill set and clear understanding of the music they are creating, it seems Cooper & Gatlin are setting themselves up to be a force for o be reckoned with. On their latest offering, “Like You”, mellow rhythmic guitar and some minimal drum programming keep the tune simplistic yet poignant. What I personally love most about Cooper & Gatlin (from the short time I’ve been a fan) is their ability to deliver commercial friendly, bubbling Pop jams with a whole lot of substance – On the surface it is all smiles and sunshine, but listen closer and the story unfolds. About the meaning behind the lyrics and the inspiration for the tune, Cooper & Gatlin say, “Like You” was inspired by observing a rocky child-parent relationship, in which the roles were reversed and the child became the parent, losing out on having an actual childhood.”
Between their stand out vocals, clean production and anthemic hooks, Cooper & Gatlin are without a doubt going to be making waves. With singles now coming in quick succession, be on the look out For a whole lot more to come:
