During a tour stop in Vancouver, BC on Wednesday, Los Angeles indie-pop outfit Echosmith were presented with Canadian Gold award plaques for their single “Cool Kids” off their debut album Talking Dreams (Warner Canada). Echosmith is comprised of 4 siblings: Sydney, Graham, Noah, and Jamie Sierota. This summer, the band completed their second stint on the Vans Warped Tour and is currently opening for American Authors on the Honda Civic Tour.
Upon recieving their awards, Echosmith tweeted the following:
After a busy summer touring the globe in support of their album 2014 White Women, Montreal, QC’s Chromeo paid a visit to Last Gang Records‘ Toronto headquarters where they were surprised with Gold and Platinum award plaques for their smash single “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)”. The awards were the first ever for the “funks lords”, who were in Toronto for a highly anticipated concert at the Kool Haus.
Over the weekend, alt-dance duo Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker (USS) were presented with their first official Canadian Gold award plaques in front of a hometown crowd at Toronto’s Echo Beach. The plaques commemorate their single “This Is The Best” selling over 40,000 digital downloads in Canada since it’s 2013 release. The headlining performance was part of rock station 102.1 The Edge’s Edgefest Summer Concert Series and fans shared their festival experience using the appropriately named hashtag #ThisIsTheFest.
