You know you've made it pretty big when a band covers a couple of your songs. There's this band in El Paso called The Chamanas and they not only cover multiple songs by Portugal. The Man, but they actually rewrite the songs in Spanish.

"They sent us a cover of 'Purple Yellow Red and Blue' and we straight up liked it better than ours," said bassist Zachary Carothers. "I kind of just want them to produce the next album."

Watch Andy's interview with the band backstage at ACL Fest below and check out The Chamanas' cover of "Purple Yellow Red and Blue":
