Echosmith has come a long way since the release of their debut album back in 2013. Although they’ve released music here and there along the way in the form of EPs and singles, the release of their sophomore album, Lonely Generation, marks the band’s first LP in seven years.
A little bit older, and a little bit wiser, Lonely Generation is the Sierota siblings’ most personal content to date, showing their evolution as both musicians and humans moving into adulthood. Not afraid to show vulnerability, the band sings of feelings that their fans can identify with, urging them to recognize that all of us are in this together, no matter how messy life may get. Despite the delay between LPs, a wide variety of Echosmith fans showed up to Park West Thursday night to support the band that had quite literally grown up with some of them.
Their set kept high energy throughout, and singer Sydney Sierota connected with fans effortlessly during the set, even bringing one on stage at one point. The set list was comprised of a good mix of old fan favorites and songs from the new album, and fans absolutely lost their minds when Echosmith played their first big hit, “Cool Kids.” The band spoke of what inspired new content, and the strong connection between the siblings was unmistakable. Everyone felt the love that night and the show left fans in high spirits as they exited to a cold, winter night.
