First penned for her band Mountain Man, when Amelia Meath asked producer Nick Sanborn to remix her track ‘Play It Right’ he did the job, but instantly sensed there was something more important happening. Swirling within their new-found partnership was more than a one-off remix… Amelia felt it, too.
Schedules aligned. Moves were made. And as 2012 slipped into 2013, Sanborn and Meath reconvened in the unlikely artistic hub of Durham, N.C. From the dizzy, crisscrossed harmonies of ‘Play It Right’ a self-titled debut has grown, a burst of essential late night pop encapsulated in a ten track collection of songs. Each a vivid addiction concerning suffering, love, darkness and deliverance.
Debut album ‘Sylvan Esso is released on Partisan Records on June 2nd.
