Echosmith are gearing up for the release of their sophomore record, Inside A Dream, on September 29 and new video for “Future Me” has us floored yet again with how classy these cool kids are.
An open letter of sorts to the kind of person you want to be, “Future Me” is a self-care anthem; a mantra to be the best version of yourself everyday despite whatever hardships you may be facing. It’s an inspiring look into the future set to Echosmith’s signature dreamy, pop sound.
“‘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.”
