Sam Harris continues to push the boundaries of music and music videos with X Ambassadors‘ brand new music video for their latest single “Don’t Stay”. Back in September you may remember the music video for “Ahead of Myself” which features a live take of Harris’s vocals, and same with “Joyful” in January. He is at it again! This time though, “Don’t Stay” features a whole new level for his vocal range. Did I mention he does the whole thing whilst breaking out Robyn-style dance moves on a basketball court (side note, this basketball court looks awesome)?
It is incredible how versatile X Ambassadors are and how flexible Sam Harris‘s voice actually is. “Don’t Stay” is nowhere near the rock sound that we loved with “Jungle” & “Unsteady” and it is not remotely close to the folksy/Americana tinged “Renegades”. It is a synth-inspired, dance rock beauty that leaves you saying, “How is this so X Ambassadors while being so NOT X Ambassadors!?”. That is what makes these guys so incredible.
Why not, right? When you are featured on several movies, television shows, commercials and completely OWN the sports anthem department, it only makes sense to conquer the club scene too, right? Regardless, if you are getting down on the floor or are just like me and dancing in your apartment, “Don’t Stay” is a very welcomed addition to the Ithaca, New Yorkers’ discography.
