Echosmith converted a mountain of buzz into a bonafide hit when teen alienation anthem “Cool Kids” found love on radio and started racing up iTunes — almost a year after it was released. The LA-based siblings will unveil a new video for their seemingly unstoppable single tomorrow (September 11) and celebrated the sale of their 500,000th download by performing on The Today Show.

17-year-old Sydney spoke about meeting Katy Perry at the MTV Video Music Awards — she’s a fan! — before launching into “Cool Kids”. The Sierota clan is a well-oiled machine when it comes to live performances and they impressed with a typically tight rendition. Expect this song to just get bigger and bigger.
