Three brothers – Adam, 23; Ryan, 19; and Jack, 16, write, mix and produce music from the living room of their parent’s apartment in Manhattan, and they are rocking the charts with their work. We all love to hear such stories of a nobody’s journey to stardom – well, here’s one you can be proud off. And if we are to believe Steve Greenberg, who is the former President of Columbia Records, then this group, which goes by the name of AJR is “going places”. He has placed his bets on AJR. The band of brothers is going to rock the world for a really long time, he says. We should listen to what Steve says, because in his days, he has met hundreds of bands. You can be sure about that. He definitely knows what he’s talking about.
“I’m Ready” is the debut single from the trio of Met brothers from New York. In fact, there is talk already that the single is a great blend of Simon & Garfunkel and Beach Boys harmonies. However, the brothers have been able to mix contemporary electro-pop influences like fun in it smartly.
The new video of I’m Ready has been written, produced, directed, and edited by the AJR brothers. And it’s become quite a hit already. The 3:55 minute video has been viewed on YouTube more than 2.5 million times as of the middle of June 2014. It has been “Liked” more than 52,000 times, which was certainly beyond anybody’s wildest expectation, given the fact that it’s just a debut song of the band. Its Nickolodeon hook, the iceberg-sized bass chunk, handclaps, and the cheery white soul vocals, everything works in this song. The combination of synthetic and DIY stuff makes “I’m Ready” stand out. In the video, you will see SpongeBob SquarePants singing I’m Ready repeatedly.
I’m Ready is becoming a bona fide hit quickly. Many radio stations across the world have played it hundreds of times already. And it’s just started its journey as well. You can definitely expect it to be played thousands of times by radio stations from the world over. Inspired by its success, many groups are now garnering for teen acts. So this song might go a long way in starting off many other bands as well. Who knows, this might soon become a trend in pop music.
VP of programming, SiriusXM, Kid Kelly, says that the song has real potential. Kid also reveals that he was personally drawn by the unique sound the brothers produced. “It’s completely different than what you’ll usually find”.
I’m Ready was released on August 22nd 2013. And soon enough it was placed in the Sirius XM Radio’s Top 20 list. The group performed the song on VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz” and Good Day New York. That only helped in making the song even more people. AJR finally released the official music video on October 15th of the same year.
