Time for some light Tuesday listening from Durham, NC based band Sylvan Esso. With Nick Sanborn creating the electronics and Amelia Meath’s voice, the duo produces an electro-pop sound tinged with folk. The awesome result is something that sounds like the child of Alt-J and Coco Rosie.
“We both have really strong listening backgrounds,” Meath told NPR. “Nick comes from a jazz background [and] I come from a folk background, where one of the main, important ingredients is being really present … and able to react in the moment.”
While I’m not a huge fan of the visual choices for many of their current music videos, the song Coffee is perfect for a rainy day, and it indeed is raining here in NYC.
