Alt-pop trio Echosmith has released their latest single, “Future Me” today, along with an official video! The video features several of singer Sydney Sierota’s family members including her mom and grandma.
Singer Sydney Sierota explains, “Future Me is all about what I would tell my future self and deciding ahead of time the kind of person I want to be. It was so important to us to portray that in the music video for this song, and the best way to do that was to have our actual family members in it!!!
Each family member represents an older or younger version of me, Sydney, and the interactions shown between all of the different “Sydney’s” are so beautiful, showing that there is wisdom in every stage of life. We got to fly our Grandma Peggy out from Buffalo, NY and although this was her first music video, she totally nailed it. In between scenes, she would give me a piece of candy to keep me going, haha. (Why didn’t I think of having candy on set earlier?! Thanks Grandma.)
We also had our mom, Linda in it. Pretty much in every shot we did, we couldn’t stop laughing. My favorite part of us together was when we hugged and you can just feel how much I love my momma 🙂 We got so lucky that my cousin actually looks SO much like what I did when I was younger, so we flew Laci out from Kansas to be in the video! We pretty much just talked the whole time and it was just so crazy to see how much she reminded me of myself (except for the fact that she’s amazing at basketball). The best part of the video is the fact that we, as a family, got so much time together. It’s not every day that you see the people you love, and this video made that possible AND told a great story. I hope you enjoy…”
We definitely do! The song has a nice summery vibe and will definitely score Echosmith another smash hit like last year’s “Cool Kids”!
