Cooper & Gatlin Talk New Acoustic Track, "Like You"

Left-of-center brother-sister pop duo Cooper & Gatlin have been quickly gaining popularity. Their debut single, "Break," already racked up 400,000+ streams on Spotify. Following the release of their second single, "Like You," the pair recorded an acoustic, stripped down version to make the serious lyrics even more memorable to listeners.

Watch and listen to "Like You - Acoustic" here.

Odyssey: The original version of "Like You," while having a fun and easy to dance to beat, is actually about something more serious that many children and adults have dealt with - a toxic parent-child relationship. How do you think re-releasing this song as an acoustic version will help people listen deeper?

Cooper & Gatlin: That's a great question. We always like doing acoustic versions of our songs because that's how we usually write them. Since all the other production elements are stripped away, you're left with just the chords, lyrics, and melody. We hope with this release that the heart and soul of the song really shines through.

O: You guys grew up touring with your mom and in your dad's music studio, so I'm assuming your relationship with your parents isn't like the one you observe in "Like You." How has your relationship with your parents impacted your music?

CG: Yeah, we always joke about how Like You is NOT about our parents. Ha. They're 100% the reason that we're doing music now. They've worked so hard for us, and have supported us and helped us grow into the people and musicians we are today.

O: Did your parents help foster your close older brother/younger sister relationship?

CG: Definitely! We were both homeschooled growing up, so we spent a lot of time together as a family. We also would travel back and forth from Nashville to LA for acting when we were younger, so it would be just the two of us and our mom for months at a time. In that kind of environment, you kind of have to learn to get along, cause there's no escaping each other. Ha. So it was really great when we both discovered our love for music, and our parents were always encouraging of us creating music together.

O: What's next for Cooper & Gatlin? Will there be any new singles, an EP, or a tour?

CG: We just landed in Nashville to prep a new single, actually! We have a few songs lined up for back to back releases that we are really excited for everyone to hear. Definitely keep an eye out on our socials for all kinds of info and updates on the stuff we have in the works!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
