Electro-pop duo Sylvan Esso contrast feel good, festival-ready pop hooks with heavy sequenced synths. And what a contrast it is. Taken out of context, producer Nick Sanborn's glitchy, squelched earth instrumentals would give contemporaries from Nicolas Jaar to Com Truise a good run for their money. At the same time, singer Amelia Meath's vocals would not feel out of place on, say, a Grouplove song. Together they combine to form a uniquely 21st century Frankenstein musical creation, one that exists as both a culmination of trends completely en vogue for the past few years and as a progenitor of pop's future, a place where the yelpy indie-folk of the Dirty Projectors sits comfortably next to a Flume set at HARD summer, set to a slideshow of Lorde's dance moves. More importantly, and this is most important after all, Sylvan Esso are catchy, catchy, catchy. What Now , a fitting title for the album you'll be listening to for the rest of the year.
