SYLVAN ESSO’s sophomore album What Now (2017) is the sound of a band truly fulfilling the potential and promise of their debut album. Everything has evolved - the production is bolder, the vocals are more intense, the melodies are brighter, and the songs are that much more expansively open and cohesive. The electro-pop duo from North Carolina, consisting of vocalist Amelia Meath and producer Nick Sanborn, started out in 2014 as a collaboration project between two new friends. Two records and more than 100 million streams later, Sylvan Esso has near-perfected the art of writing a pop song (listen to the album’s third single ‘Die Young’ for proof). This set is going to be energetic fun.
