Welcome to the VH1 You Oughta Know family, Echosmith! As part of their initiation, we threw them a curve ball: our Stop/Watch Challenge. This can separate the boys from the men and the rookies from the professionals. For newcomers, we think these cool kids did pretty well.

Echosmith is blowing up right now. They are traveling all around the world, performing on morning and late night television, AND charting in the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts all while planning to release their debut album Talking Dreams tomorrow!

So we figured why not make them take time out of their busy schedule to race against our clocks. After dominating the Stop/Watch challenge, we turned up the pressure by giving them 15 seconds to answer as many questions as they could in our Rapid-Fire Interview. See how they did below.

Be sure to look at our video gallery to see all of the Stop/Watch artists who gave it their best effort to beat the clock, plus more personal interviews.
