X Ambassadors, a modern rock and roll quartet from Ithaca, New York, formed in 2009 with their first self-titled debut EP. They released their sophomore EP, Love Songs Drug Songs, on Interscope in 2013, followed by their third EP, The Reason, in 2015 The band rose to fame on the music charts with their full-length debut, VHS (2015), featuring KIDinaKORNER labelmates Imagine Dragons and Jamie N Commons ("Fear" and "Low Life," and "Jungle," respectively). Soon after their first album came out, the small-town boys became a bonafide, touring rock and roll band, playing shows with Imagine Dragons, The Lumineers, and Panic! At the Disco with singles “Renegades” and “Unsteady” hitting radio stations across the nation. Their passionate, dark, electronic-based pop centered around the throaty, soulful vocals of Sam Harris and explores the growth of both the artists and their genre.
