Billboard - "The band makes Yeezus-filtered guitars, Southern Gothic howls and, of course, hand claps aplenty sound authentically swampy, belying the quartet's Ithaca, N.Y., roots."

X Ambassadors' full-length debut album, 2015's VHS, finds the New York outfit delivering more of its passionate, electronic-tinged pop. Once again working with executive producer Alex Da Kid (Imagine Dragons, Nicki Minaj, Eminem), VHS follows up the group's previous Alex Da Kid-produced EPs, including 2013's Love Songs Drug Songs and 2014's The Reason. As with those releases, VHS showcases the talents of lead singer/songwriter Sam Harris, keyboardist Casey Harris, and guitarist Noah Feldsuh. Featured on VHS are several guest collaborations, including the previously released "Jungle" with Jamie N Commons and "Fear" with Imagine Dragons. Also included on VHS is the hit single "Renegades." ~ Matt Collar
