“It´s important to talk about the balance between social media and real life, real connections and relationships.”
Echosmith is an indie pop band comprised of siblings Sydney, Noah, and Graham Sierota. Started in 2009, the family band has gone through immense changes over the decade: their brother Jamie leaving the band in 2016, development in songwriting content and style, and more. In this sidewalk interview, Lara asks the band a few questions about their lives and how they’ve grown since they first started making music together/since they put out their debut album Talking Dreams. The ”Cool Kids” songwriters shed light on their adolescence growing up in the Toluca Lake, Glendale, Pasadena, and Chino Hills areas; what it was like for them to garner attention and success at a young age as teenagers signed by Warner Brothers; the things they felt when touring with Pentatonix and Twenty One Pilots; what went through their mind when winning the MTV Fandom Awards; how they’ve grown as individuals beyond their music; and so much more. Watch the interview to hear the whole story before they drop their sophomore album Lonely Generation in 2020!
