Echosmith New Single 'Goodbye' & Video Out Now

pixeltracker

Echosmith has released their long-awaited new single "Goodbye," out today at all digital retailers. Opening with a finger-picked acoustic guitar entwined with frontwoman Sydney Sierota's breathy vocal, the song expresses frustration with a partner's indecisiveness, building into a danceable refrain colored by island-style keys and heavy bass as she finds the courage to finally say "Goodbye." Echosmith has also released the song's official video.

"Goodbye" is the first release off their highly-anticipated sophomore album, Inside A Dream, out September 29 via Warner Bros. Records. The 11-track set marks the long-awaited follow-up to the band's 2013 Gold-certified debut, Talking Dreams, which spawned the triple-platinum breakout hit "Cool Kids." Following the release, Echosmith will embark on a 6-week North American headline tour. See a full list of dates below.

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. Sydney explains, "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 of Stranger Things.

Echosmith first emerged onto the scene in 2013 with their debut album Talking Dreams. The (Gold-certified) album produced the triple-platinum hit "Cool Kids," and platinum-certified "Bright." The band quickly earned rave reviews from the likes of ELLE, Rolling Stone, Teen Vogue, Billboard, NYLON, and more for their distinctive melody-minded, New Wave-influenced sound. They have performed on ELLEN, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Today Show, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Late Late Show with James Corden, Conan and others. The Sierotas - Sydney (vocals/keyboard), Noah (vocals/bass), and Graham (drums) - have played to crowds of thousands at festivals and sold-out shows in the U.S. and Europe. The band has even joined Taylor Swift as a special guest on her 1989 Tour in Philadelphia to perform "Cool Kids."
