“Social media has the power to connect us in such a crazy way, but it also can create a real sense of loneliness. This song came from the heart, for our generation,” says Echosmith frontwoman Sydney Sierota.
“Lonely Generation” is the band’s first independent single on their own record label, Echosmith Music, which was created in 2018 with a deal with Warner/ADA. The song is the first taste of a lot more music to come as Echosmith embarks on their next musical chapter, encouraging hope, love and camaraderie amidst the growing pains and the happy moments that come with growing up.
Echosmith – Sydney (lead vocals/keyboard), Noah (vocals/bass), and Graham Sierota (drums) –first showcased their melodic, New Wave-influenced sound with their triple-platinum hit, “Cool Kids,” which notched a quarter-of-a-billion Spotify streams, and the double-platinum song “Bright” from their breakout RIAA gold debut album Talking Dreams, followed by the Inside A Dream EP. Simultaneously, Sydney stood out as a positive cultural force, whether acting as a brand ambassador for Coach, designing a line for Hollister, or dueting on stage with Taylor Swift. The sibling trio, who released their bold, synth-driven Top 20 Hot AC hit “Over My Head” in 2018, has earned critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, Vulture, MTV, Elle, Rolling Stone, Teen Vogue, NYLON,and more. Along the way, the trio has captivated crowds worldwide, toured with twenty one pilots and Pentatonix, garnered over 1 billion streams, and performed on numerous national TV programs including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, TODAY, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and The Late Late Show with James Corden. Earlier this year, Echosmith joined for King & Country for the powerful Top 20 Hot AC “God Only Knows” (Timbaland Remix) and also collaborated with Audien on the Top 40 radio single and Top 10 Billboard Dance Chart hit “Favorite Sound.”
