SYLVAN ESSO UNVEIL NEW VIDEO
DEBUT ALBUM OUT 2nd JUNE
TUNE-YARDS TOUR STARTS 12th MAY
“Sylvan Esso craft gorgeous woodland electronica… they’re ones to watch at SxSW” – NME
“Meath delivers a gorgeously melancholy melody. Their debut album is equally as dazzling.” – Q
“A fantastic display of using two contrasting elements to create something surprisingly organic” – Pigeons & Planes
“Dance music’s take on a folk ballad, merging drafty vocal interludes with a groovy pulse and manic jolts of sound” – Pitchfork
The blissed out euphoria of Sylvan Esso’s single Coffee has already been a smash online, a Hypemachine number 1 last month, it is now accompanied by a gorgeous new video – http://youtu.be/Qr5AIKRPIHo
An imploding house party evolves into joyous dance sequence led by Sylvan Esso’s very own Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn.
Following a string of much hyped SxSW shows, Sylvan Esso will support tUnE-yArDs in Europe in May, kicking off at the Village Underground, London on May 12th.
DEBUT ALBUM – ‘Sylvan Esso’ released on Partisan Records on June 2nd. iTunes pre-order http://smarturl.it/SylvanEsso.iTunes
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.
