Say hello to The Johnsons, a trio of brothers hailing from Los Angeles who make some seriously catchy pop music together. Their covers of pop gems like Maroon 5’s “Sugar” and Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean” have caught fans’ attention on YouTube since 2014, adding in their own original songs along the way. Today (April 3), the brothers are premiering another original, an irresistible jam titled “Scream.”
The upbeat track — which was produced by Tony Fagensen of Eve 6 — has the quality of a classic bubblegum pop song (“You’ve got me all wrapped up in you / I want you wrapped up in me too,” they sing on the chorus) while adding a little pop rock flair with a guitar solo just before the final chorus. And if you’re picking up what they’re throwing down, The Johnson promise there’s more where “Scream” came from.
“Our song ‘Scream’ was written with our live show in mind. A driving, melodic pop song with enough energy to make you dance, sing, and just as the title suggests, scream,” The Johnsons describe their track to Billboard. “The music video drops April 7th, followed by more original music. After our last tour with Cute Is What We Aim For, we can’t wait to get back on the road with new tour dates coming this summer and fall.”
