EXCLUSIVE: Echosmith Follows 'Cool Kids' With Sweet and Simple 'Bright' - On Set With the Band!
By Sophie Schillaci
The "Cool Kids" are back.
Sibling band Echosmith is following up their 2014 hit with a sweet and simple message on "Bright," and only ETonline's Sophie Schillaci was on set for their music video shoot in downtown Los Angeles.
"The song is very simple but at the same time it has a lot of meaning behind it, just about love," singer Sydney Sierota said. "Love can be about so many things. It can be about your family, I mean these are my brothers and we wouldn’t be shooting this video if I didn't love them! It's about your friends and your significant other an all those that you interact with daily. That's why this song I think deserves such a simple and beautiful video."
Directed by Declan Whitebloom (who counts Taylor Swift, One Direction, Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers among his past clients), "Bright" shows off the Sierota family's natural charm in a rustic barn and a star-lit field. The sibs grab some friends for a "glamping" adventure, but Sydney prefers a more low-key approach in real life.
"When I go camping, that's my break," she said. "There's no makeup, my hair is probably in a bun and I'm probably wearing workout pants and running shoes."
On the red carpet, it's a different story. The 17-year-old is well on her way to "it girl" fashion status, with websites dedicated to stealing her style and a Gen Girl deal with BCBGeneration. Need further proof? Look no further than her Instagram account, which is chock full of flawless selfies and quirky fashion.
After a banner 2014, Sydney says the band aims to "go with the flow" in the new year.
"Some of the best advice I've gotten is to just appreciate the moment," she said. "I think it's really important to acknowledge where you're at and to really embrace it. That's what the fans deserve, and that's what you deserve."
