What do you do when you have 4 siblings that grow up in a musical household? You form a band, or at least that’s what the Sierota siblings did. Forming the 80s rock dance band Echosmith in 2009, Jamie, noah, Sydney and Graham have shown that family can take you far. They have gone on a US & Canada tour opening for Owl City as well as Vans Warped tour…twice. They have also managed to sign with powerhouse Warner Brothers Records, had their song Tonight We’re Making History be featured for an NBC Olympics promo, and record & release two EPs. Along the way they’ve compiled enough songs to release their first full-length album Talking Dreams.
The fourteen track deluxe album features a good variation of songs ranging from almost acoustic to 80s dance rock; which really worked for them thanks to a smart track arrangement. The album starts out very strong with Come Together, which features their inner rockers. It uses a mix of synth sounds, strong bass presence and guitar, which flawlessly transitions to Let’s Love. Maintaining the high energy they follow with their single Cool Kids; an anthem of youth and the inevitable need to be one of the popular people despite it being only a façade. The album then takes a bit of a turn with March Into The Sun, which slows down and sounds a bit more youthful. The following tracks keep with this same type of tempo, but does it in a way that changes up the songs just enough to not get bored. The last few songs become a bit more anthem like, especially Nothing’s Wrong.
Overall the album is a clear reflection of themselves and their youth. They have found what works well for them, but there is no one type of sound that they have settled on; which gives them a lot of room to still play around with their sound. It’s fun, young and illustrates the great potential that they have.
