With every great song that Echosmith continues to release, I am constantly haunted by the regret of not having gone to watch the band perform on the 2013 Vans Warped Tour despite having two opportunities to do so. So many regrets. That said, Echosmith are immensely talented and it makes their story even better knowing that they’re all just immensely talented siblings. “Bright” follows the success of their previous single, “Cool Kids,” and it is exactly the breezy, serene track that we needed after its predecessor took over the world by storm. It’s the kind of song to start your day off with and for me, it’s the song I’m ending my night on. I hope the melody stays with me in my dreams.
