Additional notes/observations: 

American indie pop band Echosmith's song Cool Kids (released October 8, 2013) seems to bear more than a passing resemblance to American indie pop band Foster the People's Pumped Up Kicks (released September 14, 2010). While technically in different keys with varied structures (Cool Kids is in Ab major, and follows a vi-IV-I-V; while PUK is in Eb major and follows a ii-IV-I-V), the songs' progressions share three of the four same chords (Cool Kids: Fmin-Db-Ab-Eb; PUK: Fmin-Ab-Eb-Bb). They also share close tempos (CK: 130bpm; PUK: 131 bpm) and production values/arrangements (same drum beat, ethereal synth pad, and bass rhythm). Ironically, Pumped Up Kicks itself resembles another tune--King Harvest's Dancing in the Moonlight.
