So we missed it live…

But we got a video!:

It’s a half hour, so give yourself some time. Or you can skip ahead to around 18:00 (-11:30) or so.

 
FYI: Info on Toyota Texas Music Revolution here.

I agree with this placement…

From Idol Chatter, “The Top 10 Post-American Idol Songs” (of 2016, that is):

“Automatic” by Castro: The best song on the very fine debut EP from Casto, which includes Jason (4th on Season 7 of Idol), brother Michael (a contestant on Seasons 8 & 9) and younger sister Jackie. Dang, does she sound great on the opening to this song? Then the very familiar voice of Jason cuts in on verse number two. Here’s hoping the trio continue making music together. I haven’t ranked these songs, but this is my absolute favorite from 2016.

 
To explain–the writer, Mark Franklin, begins by saying he’s not ranking the songs, but… 😉 Anyway, check out the whole article here!

My absolute fave from the EP is Hearts Coming Home, so have them both!

Thanks for the find, Jasonized! (And for the video, too…)

“Automatic” video is LIVE


Video by Castro

(I especially love the end, just perfect!)

There is also a piece on the IHeartRadio website that talks about the meaning behind the video. From the Castros:

Images of love, nature, and light serve to evoke the feeling that love is an irresistible adventure that beckons, and is at it’s best when it is simple, care free – Automatic.

 
Don’t forget to check out the rest of the article!

PLUS! There is a new video about the story behind “Automatic”:
