COOPER & GATLIN RELEASE THEIR CATCHY AND CLEVER SECOND SINGLE "LIKE YOU"

COOPER & GATLIN RELEASE THEIR CATCHY AND CLEVER SECOND SINGLE “LIKE YOU”

Like You_cover-FINAL (1).jpg

Up and coming brother-sister indie pop duo Cooper & Gatlin have released their second single “Like You” everywhere today. “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. Armed with a catchy hook and infectious production from Steve Solomon, who produced the James Arthur hit  “Say You Won’t Let Go” which has surpassed 1 Billion streams, Cooper & Gatlin delicately draw the listener into serious subject matter using the power of a danceable beat.

“It’s hard to believe that ‘Like You’ is only the second single released by this duo. Most artists take a while to find their sound, but Cooper & Gatlin have got theirs down. They’ve found their voice. “Like You” is an upbeat anthem with a unique sound. The catchy beat, clever lyrics, and smooth vocals make for a perfect addition to all of your playlists.” –Affinity Magazine

Their debut single “Break” is an equally catchy and relatable tune about the stoic face you put on in front of ex- lovers. It plays with the duality of looking alright before someone who has broken your heart. Upon its release the track was featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday U.S. playlist and the video has now amassed over 612,000 plays. Ultra Records artist Tep No also produced a remix of the track that he even called “one of the best remixes I've made.”

“Cooper & Gatlin's latest video is simple but doesn't hold back on aesthetics. The all-too relatable lyrics and intricate acoustic guitar shine.”  – Popdust

The true brilliance of this duo lies in their ability to blend elements of both acoustic and electronic music so seamlessly. They draw you in with their lush harmonies, tight melodies and playful brother-sister dynamic. They really found their sound when the pair’s family relocated to Los Angeles in 2014 from their hometown of Franklin, Tennessee. They’ve spent the past several years honing their craft as songwriters and musicians by forging their wide array of influences together to create a sound uniquely their own. They recently wrote a batch of new left-of-center pop songs that are fun and uplifting in delivery, but still deeply personal and relatable.


“The duo came in fast and hot, bursting onto the pop scene with a woozy neon anthem for the broken-hearted, garnering over half a million views since its release.”  –The Music Mermaid

Brother-sister pop duo Cooper & Gatlin have released a remix of their debut single “Break” done by Ultra Records artist Tep No. "The song was already amazing,” says Tep No. “I decided to completely change the instrumental to give it a more guitar-oriented feel. I recorded a bunch of guitars for it and it's one of the best remixes I've made, the drop is insane."

The original “Break” is a catchy and relatable tune about the stoic face you put on in front of ex- lovers. It plays with the duality of looking alright before someone who has broken your heart. Upon its release the track was featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist and the video has amassed over 530,000 plays.

The duo likes to describe their sound as acoustic-meets-electronic. Finding inspiration from artists like Broods and Kevin Garrett, they draw you in with their lush harmonies, tight melodies and playful brother-sister dynamic. Originally from Franklin, Tennessee, the family relocated to Los Angeles in 2014 and the two have spent the past several years honing their craft as songwriters and musicians. By forging their inspirations, the duo recently wrote a batch of new left-of-center pop songs that are fun and uplifting in delivery, but still deeply personal and relatable.

Although putting their debut into someone else’s hands was nerve-racking, they couldn’t be happier with the results. “Tep No is amazing and absolutely killed it. We love hearing the melody and lyrics over a new chord progression. Also, the fact that the DJ remix is still guitar-based is a really nice touch. It feels like a completely new song, yet keeps the spirit of the original,” they said.

“Their sound is mature and feels advanced in their years as a duo. Cooper and Gatlin could easily be on the radio and jump into mainstream music.” - Veracious Magazine

THE DAVENPORTS RELEASE "WHERE SHALL WE HANG ELENA?" + ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM

THE DAVENPORTS RELEASE “WHERE SHALL WE HANG ELENA?” + ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM DON’T BE MAD AT ME COMING JULY 13TH

Where Shall We Hang Elena.jpg

New York indie pop group The Davenports have released the single “Where Shall We Hang Elena?” from the forthcoming album Don’t Be Mad at Me due out July 13th.

The Davenports is the long time project of songwriter and musician Scott Klass, who according to the Deli Magazine are “steeped in pop/rock—Ben Folds meets Weezer …leading you to sing along to songs you’re hearing for the first time while stories unfold of relationships gone awry….”  

“Where Shall We Hang Elena? ” was inspired by an incredible 60’s/70’s era photo Klass had of his mother, who died when he was only twelve. He wanted to hang the image, but wasn’t sure he wanted the constant reminder of the painful memory. Klass found this dilemma of wanting to honor the life of a loved one, but also being fearful of the pain the constant reminder of their absence would bring to be a relatively universal feeling. Everyone has experienced this mixture of loss, fear and love and it was this idea that sparked  the writing of “ Where Shall We Hang Elena?”  The song is not about his mother, but a fictional girl, who both mesmerized the family and caused them heartache.

Prior Davenports albums have been released to critical acclaim, the songs of which can be heard in a number of films and TV shows, including the song “Five Steps,” which is the theme song to A&E’s Emmy-nominated show Intervention. Although, Klass is at the helm of the writing and creative process behind the Davenports, he has always looked at the project as a collective. The collective is made up a rotating group of stellar artists creating music with regular appearances by Claudia Chopek (Father John Misty, Springsteen, Moby), Garo Yellin (The Band’s Visit, The Ordinaires, Pere Ubu), Danny Weinkauf, Dan Miller (They Might Be Giants), Erik Philbrook, Rob Draghi and Cheri Leone to name a few.   “

“Klass writes melodic confections that seep into your psyche and stay…and does so with wit and intelligence.” – Pop Matters

Don’t Be Mad at Me, marks a series of firsts for Klass. Shirley Simms of The Magnetic Fields handles lead vocals on “Miranda in Her Room”--the first Davenport's song to ever feature a lead vocalist other than Klass. The track ”I Don’t Know What to Do”--marks Klass’s entry into the world of co-writing.  Klass wrote the song with Swedish pop musician David Myhr (The Merrymakers) while on a “co-writing tour” of the U.S. The tracks “Miranda in Her Room,” and  “I Don’t Know What to Do” were also collaborations, and in this case long distance international collaborations.

In addition to the Davenports, Klass is member of Look Park, the new project from Fountains of Wayne front man Chris Collingwood which also includes Philip Price of Winterpills. Last year, the trio played Japan’s Fuji Rock festival, opened for Squeeze on their west coast tour, and last Spring Klass and Collingwood supported rock legend Dave Davies of the Kinks.
