WHAT IT IS: For these buzzing musicians, an unshakable sense of brotherhood has long shaped the sound and spirit of the band. Growing up in small-town upstate New York, frontman Sam Harris, his brother Casey and childhood friend Noah Feldshuh bonded over an obsessive love for punk, rock & roll, soul and hip-hop. After graduating high school and decamping to New York City, the trio joined up with drummer Adam Levin—a move that helped X Ambassadors solidify their sound into a groove-fueled take on alt/pop.
