Nearly a decade ago, three of the four young members of the Ithaca, NY, quartet X Ambassadors left home with great ambition, vowing not to look back. That journey — which includes some looking back — is chronicled on the band’s stomping, syncopated full-length 2015 debut, VHS. The songs on VHS are woven with a series of “interludes,” or bits of audio from the archives of their family video albums. “I wanted the album to feel like a movie,” the band’s singer and guitarist Sam Harris says. In 2012, their ballad “Litost” was included on a Spotify playlist and caught the ear of the program director at Virginia rock station 96X.That lead to a management deal and a lot of buzz. In 2013, X Ambassadors released the EP Love Songs Drug Songs and its 2014 EP included “The Business” and “Free and Lonely.”
