Against The Current popped up in the Youtube scene on July 14, 2012. Exactly one year ago. Alex Goot posted a cover of “Good Time” by Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen, featuring Against The Current. Later he announced that the new band from New York was joining him on a national tour. Over the year they have posted a handful of cover videos together on Youtube. Against The Current also started recording videos with the Youtube superstar, Kurt Hugo Schneider. Eventually lead singer Chrissy Costanza started recording videos of her own.
Chrissy is only 17 years old and I am completely obsessed with her voice. I like her cover of “Catch My Breath” better than the original version. It’s my go to jam to crank up in the car and sing-along to at the top of my lungs.
Against The Current’s Youtube channel has only been up for one year and they already have 273, 899 subscribers. They have so much talent and so much potential. I can only image what they are going to accomplish over the next year. I’m excited to see what awesome things they start to release soon!
