Alt-pop trio Echosmith unveiled their long-awaited sophomore album, Lonely Generation, on Friday (Jan. 10).
Over the course of a dozen tracks, the Chino, Calif.-based sibling act delves into the perils of life as a modern twentysomething — from the millenial anthem of the title track and the synth-driven self-esteem boost of “Diamonds” to the frank confessional emotions at the heart of cuts like “Everyone Cries” and “Scared To Be Alone.”
“Lonely Generation is the most personal thing we’ve ever released,” frontwoman Sydney Sierota said of the album’s inspirations in a statement. “We explore coming of age (all the good, scary and confusing things that come with that), discovering who we are as individuals and falling in love. We want every single person who listens to feel better about whatever it is that they’re going through, even if it’s because of the simple fact that none of us are alone.”
The LP follows Echosmith’s 2013 debut studio set, Talking Dreams, which featured breakout singles “Cool Kids” and “Bright.” In support of the new album, the band is set to embark on a run of 15 dates across North America, kicking off Feb. 12 at Washington D.C.’s 9:30 Club.
