“Sylvan Esso craft gorgeous woodland electronica… they’re ones to watch at SxSW” – NME
“Meath delivers a gorgeously melancholy melody. Due later this spring, their debut album is equally as dazzling.” – Q
With a packed SxSW schedule next week, Sylvan Esso have announced a run of shows supporting tUnE–yArDs in May. Kicking off at the Village Underground, London on May 12th.
The band pay their first visit to the UK on March 19th, with their single ‘Coffee’ – already a Hypemachine number one – released on March 24th on Partisan Records.
An accidental duo, Sylvan Esso was not meant to be a band. Rather, Amelia Meath asked producer Nick Sanborn to remix her track Play It Right, originally written for her band Mountain Man. He did the obligatory remix, but he sensed that there was something more important here than a one-time handoff…. Amelia felt it, too.
Schedules alligned. Moves were made. And as 2012 slipped into 2013, Sanborn and Meath reconvened in the unlikely artistic hub of Durham, N.C., a former manufacturing town with cheap rent and good food. A year later, their self-titled debut – a collection of vivid addictions concerning suffering and love, darkness and deliverance – arrives as a necessary pop balm.
Debut album ‘Sylvan Esso is released on Partisan Records on May 12th.
