Fa gairebé una dècada tres dels quatre components dels X Ambassadors grupo de Ithaca, Nueva York, deixaren les seves cases amb l’ambició d’arribar lluny en el món de la música. En la banda, hi ha dos germans , Sam y Casey Harris , que varen créixer entre discs de segona mà de Beatles, Stones, Billy Joel i Joni Mitchell.
Els àlbums de Johnny Cash i Woody Guthrie eren els preferits de son pare. L’àlbum debut de X Ambassadors, VHS, tracta d’una exploració que irònicament ha demostrat ser un viatge cap el passat, com indica el títul del disc, en referència a la tecnologia de les televisions i els vídeos de dècades passades. Sam Harris, cantant i guitarrista ha escrit les cançons i el so de la banda abraça el rock alternatiu amb dosis èpiques i els emmiralla a bandes com Imagine Dragons, Fun, The Neigbourhood, Bastille o The 1975. Aquesta nit en concert a la sala Bikini.
