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!

Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
