Cooper & Gatlin

FRESH: ‘Break’ – Cooper & Gatlin

Brother and Sister act Cooper & Gatlin have released their debut single “Break”.

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 have said.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
