Echosmith

It’s been well over a year since I saw Echosmith perform at Warped Tour 2013, and this band of siblings has been on the rise ever since. “Cool Kids,” their dreamy, synth-pop first single, brought them to the national spotlight, and the band has since followed up with the acoustic, harmony-filled “Bright,” also off their debut album Talking Dreams.
