EDITORS’ NOTES

Indie pop should hit like a rush of summer warmth, and Talking Dreams—the debut album from LA sibling quartet Echosmith—radiates from the get-go. Bask in the sunny strumming of “Nothing’s Wrong,” free-fall to the racing bassline on “Let’s Love,” or slow your roll for a stripped-down, acoustic moment on “Bright,” where those swirling synths and beaming guitars pull back to reveal frontwoman Sydney Sierota’s voice at its sweetest. This is exuberant, youthful pop—built to keep shining, whatever the weather.

About Echosmith

American outfit Echosmith is an emo and '80s dance-rock-influenced band from California. Formed in Los Angeles in 2009, the quartet of siblings originally featured lead singer Sydney Sierota, guitarist/vocalist Jamie Sierota, bassist/vocalist Noah Sierota, and drummer Graham Sierota. Echosmith signed to Warner Bros. in 2012, and a year later opened for Owl City on tour. Also in 2013, they released their debut full-length album, Talking Dreams. Thanks to the Top 15 placement of the single "Cool Kids," the album reached the Top 40 in the U.S. and charted in ten other countries. In the middle of 2014, Echosmith returned with the five-song EP Acoustic Dreams, which featured acoustic reworkings of cuts from Talking Dreams. By 2015, the quartet toured with Twenty One Pilots and the Colourist, later contributing vocals to the Zedd track "Illusion." That year, Jamie parted ways with his siblings to focus on family, leaving the Sierotas to continue as a trio. In 2017, they issued the singles "Goodbye" and "Future World" from Inside a Dream, a seven-song EP issued as a prelude to the release of their sophomore album. ~ Matt Collar
