There's been an ever-growing euphoria around the duo SYLVAN ESSO ever since their first blissed-out songs appeared online! "Hey Mami" as well as "Coffee" have been online smash hits, and created a stir that was further fuelled by their much mpraised live shows at SXSW 2014. Sylvan Esso ended up in the SXSW top picks of the New York Times, NPR and Spin
Amelia Meath had written a song called “Play It Right” and sung it with her trio, thelegendary Mountain Man. She’d met Nick Sanborn, an electronic producer working under the name Made of Oak (also former member of Megafaun), in a small club somewhere and asked him to scramble it, to render her work his way. He sensed that there was something more important here: Of all the songs Sanborn had ever recast, this was the first time he felt he’d added to the raw material without subtracting from it, he’d found his new collaborator without even looking.
Sanborn and Meath reconvened in the unlikely artistic hub of Durham, N.C., and Sylvan Esso became a band. A year later, their self-titled debut arrives as a necessary pop balm. These pop cuts condescend neither to their audience nor their makers. They are sophisticated, but with none of the arrogance that can imply; they are addictive, but with none of the banality that can entail. There is sensuality and sexual depravity, homesickness and wanderlust, nostalgia and immediacy. Sylvan Esso acknowledges that the world is a tumult of complications by giving you a way to sing and dance with those troubles, if not to will them away altogether.
