Echosmith returns with their highly-anticipated sophomore album, Inside A Dream, out September 29 via Warner Bros. Records. The 11-song set marks the long-awaited follow-up to their 2013 Gold-certified debut Talking Dreams, which spawned the triple-platinum breakout hit “Cool Kids.” A new track, “Goodbye,” will be released, July 14, alongside the official music video.
Inside A Dream marks a new and exciting direction for the LA-based alt-pop trio, showcasing a more mature and evolved sound. Led by charismatic frontwoman Sydney Sierota and rounded out by her brothers Noah (bass) and Graham (drums), the tight-knit siblings had to come to grips with the departure of big brother and guitar player Jamie, who chose to leave the band after the last album in order to spend more time with his wife and son. “We had to find ourselves as a trio instead of a quartet,” admits Noah. “At that point, we never had another musician on stage with us,” explains Sydney. “That literally forced us on a journey of having to discover this sound. We still had electric guitars, but they weren’t the center of the music anymore.” In order to bring that vision to life, the group utilized vintage synths, keys, and drum machines. As a result, Inside A Dream is awash in shimmering synths, airy guitars, and heavenly vocals that wouldn’t be out of place blasting from an eighties transistor radio during an episode Stranger Things.
