X Ambassadors (also stylised XA) is an American alternative rock band from Ithaca, New York.
The group consists of four band members: Sam Harris (lead vocals, guitar, saxophone), Casey Harris (keyboard), Noah Feldshuh (guitar) and Adam Levin (drums). Sam Harris and Casey Harris are brothers, and have been friends with Feldshuh since kindergarten in Ithaca. Sam met Levin while attending the New School in New York City in 2006.
A renegade is someone who breaks rules and does unexpected things. Why did the band choose disabled people to be the “renegades” in the video? Casey, the band’s keyboard player, is disabled. He is blind. Sam says, “The video is personal. Casey’s disability has a big effect on our band. It forces us to help one another and be a real team. He’s my brother, so we still fight all the time. But he is a huge inspiration to me.”
