Episode 037: Sam Harris (X Ambassadors)

Untitled Session21045 1_D by Nick Walker(1)

If you own a TV, odds are you’ve heard an X Ambasasdors song. This New York quartet have exploded recently, with their hit singles “Jungle” and “Renegades” appearing everywhere from Beats and Jeep commercials to a promo for the 2014 World Cup. But the band are more than just jingle writers; the group’s debut album, VHS, is an intoxicating mix of rock, hip-hop, soul and funk anchored by frontman Sam Harris’ powerful vocals. On this episode, Sam and I chat about the band’s early influences, the proclivity of the Brooklyn music scene to out-indie one another, how his favorite childhood movies colored VHS, and much more. Thanks for listening!
