Putting a successful family band together in 2016 is not an easy task – if it ever was. The success formula includes timing and demand, talent, mentoring, image and fan connection. The Atomics have all of the above, but perhaps more than anything they have a connection to their fans. At which Lucky is a champion. His devoted fans, called Lucky Charms, follow his every step on social media, send him presents and meet up with him when he tells them where he’s at.
Lucky Blue Smith reveals his top model secrets
DO YOU EVER GET ANNOYED AT YOUR BROTHER’S FANS?
PYPER: “No, we think it’s cool. And it’s never annoying. You can’t get annoyed at people for liking you – it’s just nice.”
HAVE YOU EVER HAD A NUTTY FAN SCARE YOU?
LUCKY: “No, nothing really crazy. Or there was one time at the airport in Shanghai… I had just landed for the first time in China and a girl showed up in a wedding dress, with a bouquet of flowers and a tiara. She thought it was her wedding that day and that she was getting married to me.”
WHAT DID YOU TELL HER?
“I didn’t say anything and kind of just got in the car…”
WHAT’S THE WEIRDEST THING YOU’VE EVER BEEN SENT?
“Once a girl gave me chicken feet. That was weird. Usually I get a lot of candy and stuffed animals.”
When the siblings aren’t modelling, making music or receiving chicken feet from fans, they hang out with their friends and family at home, at the beach, at the cinema or at the bowling alley.
HAS BECOMING FAMOUS CHANGED YOUR RELATIONSHIPS TO EACH OTHER?
“No they haven’t changed because of that. The thing that’s changing our relationships is that we’re getting older. Because we’re growing up.”
