Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Beachland's 15th Anniversary Celebration

When: Fri., March 6, 8 p.m. 2015

It’s not often than an indie pop band scores a hit as big as Echosmith’s “Cool Kids.” If you listen to commercial radio, you’ll hear the catchy single with soulful vocals from the band’s 2013 debut Talking Dreams in constant rotation. It gets played alongside songs from the likes of Taylor Swift and Sam Smith. Seventeen-year-old singer Sydney Sierota, who fronts the band of siblings, says she thinks the song’s sentiments about not fitting in still apply, even though the band’s now a household name. “We all have felt that desire to fit in,” she says via phone as the band drives to a show “somewhere in Texas.” “No matter how old you are or how much success you’ve had, everyone feels that need at some point. I think that’s why the song is so successful. The base of the song is real and it is a story from Echosmith. We might be talking about another boy and girl, but we’re really talking about ourselves. It’s about accepting yourself and being okay with who you are. People now ask if we’re cool now. But we relate to the song more as time goes on. We’re constantly reminding ourselves to be true to who we are.” The group has cut its musical teeth on the festival circuit, so tonight's club gig should be a winner. (Niesel)
