Allow me to introduce you to one of the coolest (and stylish) group of youngsters breaking out into the music scene: Echosmith.
The band is made up of siblings Sydney, Jamie, Noah and Graham Sierota and as I found out these cool kids were born into good taste in music.
"We grew up in a super musical household," Jamie recalls. Noah adds, "We grew up listening to music by Peter Gabriel, The Smiths, U2, Fleetwood Mac, Joy Division, New Order, Coldplay."
Clearly years of studying some music greats paid off. The siblings are celebrating the release of their debut studio album, Talking Dreams, a groovy collection of shameless indie pop music for which they co-wrote and recorded together.
As Jamie explains, "We've been spending the last 2 years on it. We're really excited because this is our first album. It's really us showing who we are. There's a lot of different kinds of songs on the record."
Watch the full interview above to learn more about Echosmith including who they name as their songwriting heroes. For a taste of their live shows be sure to check out a performance of Let's Love off the new album at the Universal City Summer Walk concert.
