X Ambassadors stopped by the JBTV Studios to play Litost off of their “Love Songs, Drug Songs” EP. A heart-broken love ballad, Litost entranced the intimate audience with the help of lead singer Sam Harris’s captivating vocals.

From Ithaca, New York, X Ambassadors has a lengthy history. The band consists of brothers Sam (vocals, guitar, saxophone) and Casey Harris (keyboard), along with childhood bestie Noah Feldshuh (guitar) and college friend Adam Levin (drums). X Ambassadors defies typical genre restrictions, creating a patchwork of acoustic and electric sounds. In 2009, the group released their first EP “Ambassadors.” After signing with Alex Da Kid’s label KIDinaKORNER through Interscope Records, they quickly released two additional EPs titled “Love Songs Drug Songs” and “The Reason” respectively. In 2015, X Ambassadors released their first full-length album “VHS.” The twenty track record includes several interludes of home-video audio clips, drawing on heavy influences from their past and reflecting on their musical journey thus far.

Find the lyrics to Litost below:

What have I done
With my heart on the floor?
Must be out of my mind
To come back begging for more

But if you stay
Just stay for the night
Swear that I’m yours
And I’ll prove that I’m right

And these flies kept me sleeping
All my fears on their wings
And your grandfather clock is still ticking
But the chime never rings

How long must I stay?
Will I lay by your side?
Just to say that I’m yours
Oh, and you’ll never be mine

With this love like a hole
Swallowed my soul
Dragging me down
There’s blood on the covers
From the curses we uttered
To each other
You played your part in this

Why play hide and go seek
safe behind your veneer?
Does it bury your burden baby,
makes it all disappear?
And those marks on your thighs,
don’t they sting when you bleed?
It’s the way that you are
And the way I’ll forever be

With this love like a hole
Swallowed my soul
Dragging me down
And there’s blood on the covers
From the curses we uttered
To each other
You played your part

With this love like a hole
Swallowed my soul
Dragging me down
And I swear I’ll stay with you
But I just can’t forgive you
And I’ll never be whole again
