Album Review: Echosmith “Talking Dreams”

Echosmith1(PCM) There is a ton of buzz generated around LA based alt-pop quartet Echosmith and the highly anticipated release of their debut album “Talking Dreams”. The band recently wrapped up performing on the Vans Warped Tour and are certainly well on their way to taking the musical landscape by storm.

The band is composed of four siblings Graham, Sydney, Noah, and Jamie Sierota ranging in age from 14 to 20 and they have without a doubt crafted together a stellar debut album with “Talking Dreams”.  The group was previously known on Youtube for their incredible covers of artists such as Mumford and Sons and Adele, but with this album that have certainly found their own voice and the collection of songs that make up “Talking Dreams” weave a wonderful story full of youthful intensity and provide an inside peek into the psyche of this band.

It is no wonder that rather than playing just a few shows, the band was asked to play the entire Vans Warped Tour this summer. Their sound is fresh and engaging and each track on the album has elements that very relatable, especially to the younger generation of upcoming and coming music fans. Tracks such as “Cool Kids”, “Come With Me”, and the album’s title track “Talking Dreams” are sure to become staples in the band’s live set and I can easily see hundreds of fans belting out these lyrics each and every night.

Echosmith have a finger on the pulse of youth culture and they are certainly going to be a band to keep on your radar into 2014.
